Betting Breakdown

Tote Win:£2.50EX:£9.80Trifecta:£13.10SF:£7.62


Orbasa (5/4), Meldrum Lad (13/8), Innocent Girl (7/2), Ashcott Boy (12/1)


All four can be given chances of some sort, but the race is muddied somewhat by the possible lack of pace. Small stakes are advised then, with ASHCOTT BOY just given the vote as he might try and pinch this off the front and is finally back on a winning mark with his ideal conditions. Orbasa has the class to take care of these but finishes runner up too many times for comfort and may well do so again here. Meldrum Lad can take a hold and might be better in a bigger field with a bit more pace on, but is still respected as an in-form winner.
  1. Ashcott Boy
  2. Orbasa
  3. Meldrum Lad
