Betting

Forecast

Delano Roosevelt (11/10), Theobald (9/2), Riyazan (5/1), Nelson (11/2), Kew Gardens (10/1), Camelback (14/1), Mattymolls Gaga (33/1), Sirjack Thomas (33/1), Medal Of Honour (50/1), Verbitude (66/1)

Verdict

There was plenty to like about RIYAZAN's debut and with the step up in trip sure to suit, he could prove difficult to beat. Delano Roosevelt is likely to be the best of the Ballydoyle contingent while Theobald holds solid each-way claims after respectable efforts in Group company.
  1. Riyazan
  2. Delano Roosevelt
  3. Theobald
