Forecast

Rekindling (2/1), Tandem (9/2), Tiger Tap Tap (5/1), Powerful Ted (11/2), Kasperenko (13/2), Turnpike Trip (13/2), Sea The Lion (12/1), Rocket Lad (22/1), Persian Lion (100/1), Feel Des Mottes (100/1), Grand D'espagne (150/1), Happy Lad (150/1), Tempting Tara (150/1), Millford Sound (200/1)

Verdict
A fascinating contest in store with 2017 Melbourne Cup winner Rekindling having just his second start on a racecourse since he gave his trainer that memorable victory in Australia. It is difficult to know how much ability he retains given he finished last on his only start last year. He could win but is likely to be well found in the market, and so preference is for the one closest to him on ratings in the shape of SEA THE LION. He only made it to the track on two occasions last year. However, he goes well fresh, and his profile is one of gradual improvement. Tiger Tap Tap is respected given his powerful connections but he may need this first outing for 120-days.
