There may be a big field for this finale but (14) WATNEY does make a huge amount of appeal as a betting prospect. The five year old gelding was runner up in his last two efforts here and deserves a change of luck. (10) BALLE REELLE and (12) SWISS BANK have to be recognized as dangers along with (6) ROYAL VATI.
