Betting

Forecast

Black Corton (4/7), Forever Field (6/4), Velvet Cognac (20/1)

Verdict

Very much a case of flicking the coin and waiting to see if it comes up heads or tails with precious little to choose between old rivals Black Corton and FOREVER FIELD. However, we'll choose to side with the Nicky Henderson trained seven-year-old and hope that Nico De Boinville can harness his keeness and get the pace right from the front end at a track which can often suit those seeking to make all.
  1. Forever Field
  2. Black Corton
  3. Velvet Cognac
