Fortune in the first

Derek Currie

FORTUNE Basin can supply some late Lai See money by taking out the first event on the card over 1,235 metres on the Valley sandmesh. Trained by Bruce Hutchison, the son of Bluebird has class on his side and with the likelihood of King Prawn starting as a raging favourite could provide decent value.

Fortune Basin raced five times in Ireland prior to coming here recording a victory at Tipperary over five furlongs and placing three times. He additionally finished a very good fifth at a Group One race at the Curragh indicating that he's more than good enough to win races here.
