Forecasts

Mystic Court (8/11), Blazing Saddles (3/1), Galurin (7/1), Mr Yeats (11/1), Chief Brody (14/1), Caroline's Quest (28/1), Nuriel (50/1), Aluna Quartz (50/1)

Verdict

MYSTIC COURT dotted up at Newton Abbot recently and, with no penalty to carry, he is hard to oppose. There may be better to come from Mr Yeats now that he takes the handicap path and the 4-y-o is preferred to Blazing Saddles for forecast purposes.

  1. MYSTIC COURT (IRE)
  2. MR YEATS (IRE)
  3. BLAZING SADDLES
