Betting

Forecast

Valadom (10/11), Steel Bob (11/8), Follow The Bear (11/8), Cap Horner (10/1), Don't Tell My Mrs (20/1), Rollo's Reflection (33/1), Griffington (100/1)

Verdict

VALADOM should take all the beating if he proves to be anywhere near as good over hurdles as he is fences. Follow The Bear is likely to give him most to think about and Steel Bob should come on for his recent run at Kempton.
  1. Valadom
  2. Follow The Bear
  3. Steel Bob
