Forecasts

Duke Of Mantua (5/2), Erzindjan (3/1), Rave N Contagion (6/1), Shackleton Hero (6/1), Laelaps (10/1), True Artist (16/1), Fourhometwo (18/1), The Blue Panther (20/1), Keeper Of Time (22/1), Knocknakilla (28/1), Amazed By Grace (33/1)

Verdict

ERZINDJAN is lightly raced and proven on a testing surface. He was thought good enough to be tried in a Group 3 last October and he can continue his progression by taking this off a mark of 91. Shackleton Hero has progressed over the winter on the all-weather and will be a danger. Duke of Mantua should also be competitive.

  1. ERZINDJAN (IRE)
  2. SHACKLETON HERO (IRE)
  3. DUKE OF MANTUA (IRE)
