Betting

Forecast

Gronkowski (9/4), Fortune's Pearl (3/1), Court House (7/2), Three Weeks (4/1), Ventura Knight (12/1), Bobby Biscuit (14/1), Ambient (50/1)

Verdict

This valuable mile conditions event has attracted some interesting contenders with a case able to be made for at least six of them. GRONKOWSKI has come good of late and seems well suited by this surface. His win last time suggested there could be more to come and he is narrowly preferred to Fortune's Pearl and Court House, both of whom bring decent form into the race. Three Weeks is another horse with a future and can be expected to go well, while both Bobby Biscuit and Ventura Knight cannot be ruled out of the equation either.
  1. Gronkowski
  2. Fortune's Pearl
  3. Three Weeks
