Betting

Forecast

Deal With It (9/4), Aldawayfornothing (3/1), Caveat Emptor (4/1), Toulson (4/1), Schindlers Ark (6/1), Viking Hoard (6/1), Galtymore (10/1), Ingleby Mackenzie (14/1), Tildas Icon (25/1), I've Got Rhythm (28/1), Golan Cloud (33/1), Dukes Avenue (33/1), Askari (50/1), Bazarov (66/1), Jack Lee (80/1)

Verdict

Not many of these set the pulse racing. Of those to have run over hurdles, Caveat Emptor and Aldawayfornothing look the most likely to get involved at the business end, but there is a fair chance one of the newcomers will be good enough and the one which catches the eye is DEAL WITH IT. From a good family, he cost quite a bit as a three-year-old and is sure to have been well prepared for his debut. Schindlers Ark is another to keep an eye on.
  1. Deal With It
