Forecast

De Mazzaro (5/2), Ingleby Mackenzie (5/1), Walking On Glass (6/1), Take A Turn (7/1), Drummer (7/1), Shoulda Lied (7/1), Appian Way (15/2), Walkabout (8/1), Ilikehim (17/2), El Chico Mejor (11/1), Griffyndor (14/1), Ostaiocht (16/1), Make Good (20/1), Eyeoweyou (25/1), Fontainbleau (28/1), Talsara (40/1), Charle Brune (66/1), Aneczka (80/1), Hinemoa (100/1)

Verdict

SHOULDA LIED probably boasts the best recent form in the line-up and if not inconvenienced by this drop in trip then he definitely deserves closer examination in a line-up that does not include many likely winners. Ingleby Mackenzie is not the most reliable these days but he is capable of putting in some useful performances when on song. He is also starting to look well handicapped. Walking On Glass has the level of consistency to suggest a handicap of this class is within his grasp.
  1. Shoulda Lied
  2. Ingleby Mackenzie
  3. Walking On Glass
