Betting

Forecast

Surrey Blaze (13/8), Father Ailbe (5/1), Dark Freedom (6/1), Amity Island (8/1), Late Change (8/1), Dubai Landmark (12/1), Rosedale Topping (12/1), Gemologist (14/1), Hollywood Dream (16/1), Arlecchino's Arc (50/1)

Verdict

This can go to the hat-trick seeker, SURREY BLAZE. This progressive type won over C&D last time out and has more to offer over this trip. Despite being up in the weights the jockey booking is a positive and he could be better than even his revised mark in time. He is taken to get the better of Hollywood Dream, especially if Freebe Rocks can boost the form of her recent Kempton fourth earlier in the card, and Dark Freedom.
  1. Surrey Blaze
  2. Hollywood Dream
