Betting

Forecast

Blue Baton (3/1), Detonate (10/3), Thepensionfund (10/3), Paper Promise (7/2), Leostar (11/2), Keepinupwitdjones (9/1), Reaplee (10/1), Marocchino (25/1), Skye Chief (28/1), Dreamliner (40/1)

Verdict

An interesting way to end the card and one in which PAPER PROMISE is taken to build on the promise of her good Kelso debut from last May and go one better this time. James Ewart has two runners worth noting in Detonate, who ran well enough on his only start so far and Marocchino, while the same applies to the Lucinda Russell-trained entries Blue Baton, from the family of former Champion Bumper winner Dunguib and fellow newcomer Thepensionfund. Sharon Watt is among the winners and although she has yet to break her duck in this discipline, we could see an improved effort from Keepinupwitdjones.
  1. Paper Promise
  2. Blue Baton
  3. Keepinupwitdjones
