Forecast

Arthur's Baby (1/1), Double Windsor (5/1), Scotsman's Bay (15/2), Caddy Shack (17/2), Miraculum (17/2), Balinaboola Steel (12/1), Mick Charlie (12/1), Helly Hansum (14/1), Our Majella (16/1), Don't Let Go (16/1), Annual Flavour (28/1), Bonnie's Dream (33/1), Rockview Emperor (50/1), Megara (150/1), Backonthehill (150/1)

Verdict

DOUBLE WINDSOR does not win very often but has been showing enough effort and form on his latest starts to suggest he is capable of landing this interesting contest. The gelding put in a useful effort last time out at Cork and if able to progress a bit more, should run a big race especially if the ground softens further. Arthur's Baby is turned out under a penalty following her recent win at Cork. If appreciating this step up in trip she could run a big race. Miraculum is another taking a step into the unknown as regards the trip but if happy with it then her recent reliability should serve her well.
  1. Double Windsor
  2. Arthur's Baby
  3. Miraculum
