Betting

Forecast

Reckless Wave (9/2), Bridey's Lettuce (13/2), Desert Cross (7/1), Art Of Swing (8/1), Saumur (8/1), Multigifted (10/1), Mazaaher (10/1), Ivanhoe (12/1), Rahmah (12/1), Sark (12/1), Hallingham (12/1), Party Royal (12/1), Pour L'Amour (14/1), Ma Peek (16/1), Methag (20/1), Victor's Bet (20/1), Rocky Elsom (25/1), The Detainee (28/1), Ring Eye (33/1), Mr Caffrey (40/1)

Verdict

RECKLESS WAVE dead-heated at Wolverhampton earlier this month and is less exposed than most of her rivals in this. The selection has scored twice on the AW but has run well on turf in the past and can take this at the chief expense of Kempton winner Art Of Swing who ran well on his seasonal debut at Goodwood earlier this month while Hallingham can register another placing by claiming third here.
  1. Reckless Wave
  2. Art Of Swing
  3. Hallingham
