Betting

Forecast

Abyssinian (8/13), Sea Swift (3/1), Bhutan (9/2), New Story (16/1), Appointment Only (66/1)

Verdict

Sea Swift was held up in a change of tactics, which could make for a falsely run event, where the presence of Bhutan is fascinating, while he will have to bring his A game to trouble the improving ABYSSINIAN, whose yard are six from 25 at this meeting in the last four years, with their three-year-olds,boasting a 24% strike-rate.
  1. Abyssinian
  2. Bhutan
  3. Sea Swift
