Forecast

Hong Kong (3/1), Lustown Baba (5/1), The King Of Kells (13/2), Justina (15/2), In From The Cold (8/1), Elusive King (8/1), Camachita (12/1), Wild Cherry (14/1), Real Appeal (16/1), The Peckhampouncer (22/1), Bella Brazil (25/1), Fan Club Rules (40/1), Varna Gold (50/1), Cardinal Rule (66/1)

Verdict
Several above him in the weights, including Camachita and Hong Kong, have been seen in Group races but it may well prove best to side with the clear promise of ELUSIVE KING who stayed 6f in the mud so well at Naas in his two maidens last autumn. In From The Cold and Lustown Baba have already won over C&D on similar ground, which earns plenty of respect, while several of the others are unexposed and could have more to offer.
  1. Elusive King
  2. Camachita
  3. Lustown Baba
