Forecast

Darkened (4/1), Overheer (4/1), Lady Savanah (5/1), Up With The Play (11/2), Excuzio Joe (6/1), Eastern Racer (6/1), Aussie Valentine (8/1), Takeachancejimmy (9/1), Phoenix Open (16/1), Extensio (18/1), Hisnameis Mrdevitt (22/1), Popsicle (66/1)

Verdict

UP WITH THE PLAY caught the eye at Gowran last month and could do a lot better now handicapping, the excellent Luke McAteer in the saddle ticking another box. Overheer is a big player after his professional Tipperary win, while you couldn't rule out Lady Savanah again.
