Some observations when doing the form:
i) There are a clump of Irish horses whom I refer to as "The Europeans" who all seem to be weighted similarly and seem to take turns in winning. Any of The Europeans could win the race if things go their way on race day.
ii) Two horses, Hunting Horn and Magic Wand, seem to have been running around in a lot stronger races than The Europeans. They often run in international Group 1 races and a lot of the form had Enable winning the race.
iii) The Japanese horse Mer De Glace has an undeniable chance but at $6.50 all the value has been sucked out.
iv) Finche, Prince Of Arran and Youngstar are weighted to provide an opportunity to reverse the result on Cross Counter from last year.
Forced to go 1-2-3-4-5 at this stage I'd go:
Mer De Glace
Noted that Chris Waller is winning anything and everything at the moment and his two charges, Finche and Youngstar, seem to be in the race with a good chance.
I like Youngstar's prep. This time last year she was having her 5th campaign run in The Cup (6th). This time around he has given her one more run and wondering if Waller has changed her prep a little to get her to peak on Cup day. $51 appeals for some sort of saver.
