Betting

Forecast

Boy In A Bentley (5/6), Gvs Irportensa (3/1), Mccools Gold (9/2), Ocean Eleven (9/1), Air Approach (16/1), Phoenix Park (20/1), Wild Murphy (33/1), Mister Mister (100/1), Chasing Headlights (100/1)

Verdict

AIR APPROACH is an interesting contender here for Tim Vaughan having finished second on his sole hurdles outing to date at Exeter in April. He was a bit keen then, but still managed to rally well when headed by the odds-on winner and came come a clear second. The third home, Foxy Act, has scored three times in novice company since and, with potential for more to come now, the selection could get off the mark on this return to action. Boy In A Bentley sets the standard on form and should have a major say on first start for his new trainer while Gvs Irportensa, with the champion on board, and Mccools Gold are others to look out for in the betting.
  1. Air Approach
  2. Boy In A Bentley
  3. Gvs Irportensa
