Betting

Forecast

Vancouver (6/5), Gibson Park (2/1), Sea Sovereign (9/2), Arthington (8/1), Onehelluvatouch (33/1), Solid Justice (66/1), Ashford Island (200/1)

Verdict
The penalties make life hard for Gibson Park, whose consistency is a very tempting factor for giving him another chance. However, VANCOUVER can be expected to be a bit sharper after his return to the fray at Newton Abbot earlier this month. He rates as the better value option in a tricky little race. Sea Sovereign also appeals as an unexposed individual that has been found a relatively weak introduction to hurdles, so has to merit a check in the betting at least.
  1. Vancouver
  2. Gibson Park
  3. Sea Sovereign
