    With fast breaking horses like Battalion Runner, Gormley, Irap, Slate of Honor wouldn’t you think the pace will be reasonably fast? I’m guessing a tick on either side of 47 for the 1/2.
    A lot of other horses will be wrestling for position behind them.
    It’s no surprise to expect Gunnevera, J Boys Echo, Tapwrit, and Hence will be last out of the gate.
    We’ll have to wait and see how the post position draw will help or hinder some of them.
