Forecast

Magic J (13/8), Chairmanoftheboard (6/1), Saluti (7/1), Gold At Midnight (7/1), Texting (17/2), Commander Han (11/1), Ginger Jam (12/1), Boy In The Bar (20/1), Colonel Frank (22/1), Bungee Jump (33/1), The Night Watch (125/1)

Verdict
This looks a far more competitive division than it’s predecessor with several progressive types lining up. Magic J the most lightly-raced in the field ran well on his handicap debut and off a mark of 85 he ought to be able to make his mark but this is a very different surface. Texting appeals as the type to produce more as a 4yo but has yet to win at this trip. Ginger Jam had a stellar year in 2019 but does to overcome a 10-month absence and a career-high mark on his return. SALUTI has performed well fresh before and still looks well handicapped, he looks a value option in this tough sprint. Chairmanoftheboard is another interesting contender who could get in the shake-up.
  1. Saluti
