10/1 Dilawara, 8/1 Marbling, 66/1 Secret Pulse, 14/1 So I Told You, 8/1 Surrounding, 6/1 April Showers, 25/1 Awhile, 20/1 Friendly, 12/1 Lovely Esteem, 7/1 Moddy Poddle, 20/1 My Holy Fox, 10/1 Neptune Rock, 3/1 Oodnadatta, 16/1 River Eden, Talacre, Camdeboo, French Rain

Verdict

Plenty of these have chances. April Showers has a good draw and going forward early might be her best chance. The overall form exhibited by Oodnadatta this season is the best in the race and with better luck in running than at Naas last time she looks sure to go close. It might be worth taking a chance though with MODDY PODDLE, who has enjoyed a fine year and despite finishing behind Oodnadatta at Naas, showed that she is finding her feet at this level. She can go close from a good draw. [Justin O'Hanlon]
