Betting

Forecast

Newbolt (11/4), Masked Identity (5/1), Count Of Amazonia (11/2), Flaming Spear (11/2), Galactic Glow (11/2), Aroha (6/1), Mr Scaramanga (17/2), Love Destiny (16/1), Samphire Coast (16/1), Transition (18/1), Ballard Down (28/1)

Verdict

GALACTIC GLOW ended the turf season in terrific form so, provided he's fully effective on polytrack, he can improve on his recent second-placed finishes and gain a deserved first success. Most of the others look exposed but Masked Identity needs considering from a good draw and, if they go a strong pace, the well-treated Flaming Spear should feature.

  1. GALACTIC GLOW (IRE)
  2. MASKED IDENTITY
  3. FLAMING SPEAR (IRE)
