Forecast

Punitive (5/1), Even Flight (11/2), Minx Tiara (13/2), Dawson's Gate (13/2), Seskinane (7/1), Our Boy Boru (8/1), Spancil Hill (10/1), Nobel Joshua (10/1), Askann (12/1), Just Another Lady (16/1), Need For Gold (20/1), Wee Small Hours (20/1), Amaulino (20/1), Secret Cargo (50/1)

Verdict
PUNITIVE is a hurdler who has a progressive profile and he may not have stopped winning just yet. A winner over course and distance here last month, the six-year-old does not have too many outstanding rivals to get the better of and can come out on top once again. Minx Tiara is a very consistent mare and is likely to be in the firing in the closing stages. Veteran Seskinane delivered a deserved win last time at this track and repeat of that effort would give him very solid place claims.
  1. Punitive
  2. Minx Tiara
