Forecasts

Frederic (5/4), Teak (5/1), All For The Best (11/2), Aurora Gray (8/1), Arrowtown (8/1), Medina Sidonia (12/1), Uncle Bernie (14/1), Waterclock (16/1), Tuscan Gold (25/1), Serenity Now (25/1), Riptide (33/1), La Bacouetteuse (33/1), Rock On Bollinski (50/1)

Verdict

Plenty of the usual suspects here with several of these having taken each other on a few times before with previous winners of this event Riptide and Tuscan Gold probably able to go round here blindfolded. That duo may well be vulnerable now to some improvers with the unexposed Uncle Bernie, All For The Best and Aurora Gray all having claims in an open heat. Frederic is of obvious interest given his form for the Dalgleish yard on his debut at Carlisle and he looks capable of further improvement but a chance is taken with ARROWTOWN after she caught the eye at Doncaster in a race that she really should have won.
  1. Arrowtown
  2. Frederic
  3. All For The Best
