Betting

Forecast

Breaking Ground (5/2), Johns Luck (11/2), Karl Marx (7/1), Upham Running (15/2), Denny Kerrell (8/1), Ring Minella (10/1), Barney From Tyanee (11/1), Chasing Headlights (12/1), Kayf Tiger (16/1), Russian Spy (28/1)

Verdict

A modest opener and a race where it is not easy to be confident about anything, but the suggestion is to side with BARNEY FROM TYANEE, who is well handicapped on fairly recent chase form, has trip/ground to suit and could benefit from the fitting of cheekpieces. John Luck is not too dissimilar in profile and can go well, while Breaking Ground, Russian Spy, Upham Running and Karl Marx are the others of most interest.
  1. Barney From Tyanee
  2. Russian Spy
  3. Upham Running
