9/4

Has a reasonable pedigree and well prepared following 14 months off when landing 8-runner bumper at Hexham 3 weeks ago. Was well on top that day, so he can be a factor under a penalty.

Betting

Forecast

Bucko's Boy (9/4), Gericault Roque (3/1), Noahthirtytwored (7/2), Grandeur D'ame (9/2), Hartnoll Hero (17/2), Danny Park (22/1), Little Peachey (40/1), Fanfan La Colmine (40/1), Pickapocketortwo (80/1)

Verdict

BUCKO'S BOY was nicely on top when making a successful reappearance at Hexham 3 weeks ago, and on that evidence, is capable of defying a penalty. Gericault Roque and Grandeur d'Ame are perhaps the pick of the newcomers.

  1. BUCKO'S BOY
  2. GERICAULT ROQUE (FR)
  3. GRANDEUR D'AME (FR)
