Forecasts

Irish Poseidon (15/8), Macaban City (13/2), Tham Luang (13/2), Kartayaz (9/1), Take A Turn (9/1), Solar System (12/1), Bell Manannan (12/1), Sand Castle (12/1), Morph Speed (14/1), Sharjah (14/1), Aldente (16/1), Getaway Queen (16/1), Persian Lion (18/1), Elegant Lass (18/1), Dashing Diamond (33/1), Strip Light (50/1)

Verdict

A highly-competitive opener with the vote in favour of 3-y-o SOLAR SYSTEM. He showed improved form to get off the mark over shorter here recently and he may yet have a little more to offer now tackling 12f for the first time. Irish Poseidon, Sharjah and Dashing Diamond are just a trio of others to consider.

  1. SOLAR SYSTEM (IRE)
  2. IRISH POSEIDON (GER)
  3. SHARJAH (IRE)
