Betting

Forecast

Australis (13/8), Caledonian Crusade (3/1), Pleasure Garden (9/2), True Destiny (6/1), Quloob (12/1), Pianissimo (14/1)

Verdict

AUSTRALIS has been contesting competitive handicaps all summer and his second in the Northumberland Plate stands out markedly in this much weaker event. so he should take all the beating as he returns to an artificial surface. Pleasure Garden is a typical improver at these trips for this yard and can't be discounted. Caledonian Crusade may also improve more to get involved in the finish.

  1. AUSTRALIS (IRE)
  2. PLEASURE GARDEN (USA)
  3. CALEDONIAN CRUSADE (IRE)
