After taking everything into account, there are three horses who come out on top according to the trends. They are Cairn Gorm, Monsieur Kodi and Raatea. As both Cairn Form and Monsieur Kodi were both winners last time out, we give a stronger preference to Raatea, who is our main trends tip for the race. Julie Camacho’s runner has a nice draw in stall 20, and has to bounce back from a below par effort at Newcastle when sent off favourite there last time out. He is a big player.
