Forecast

Laugh A Minute (15/8), Christopher Wood (9/4), Champs De Reves (13/2), Barbarianatthegate (8/1), Cuban Heel (9/1), Tigre du Terre (14/1), Freebe Rocks (14/1), Galactic (20/1), Mr Large (20/1), Protected Guest (33/1)

Verdict

This is not as competitive as the first heat and CHRISTOPHER WOOD is taken to confirm the favourable impression he created at Salisbury on his debut when landing what looked a decent maiden. He attracted significant support that day and is clearly held in some regard. Laugh A Minute is feared given the record of the trainer/jockey combination this year, whilst Champs de Reves looks best of the rest.
  1. Christopher Wood
  2. Laugh A Minute
  3. Champs De Reves
