Betting

Forecast

Knightly Spirit (5/2), Ship Of The Fen (9/2), Glorious Army (6/1), Betjeman (7/1), Cracker Factory (12/1), Spark Of War (12/1), French Flyer (12/1), Brisk Tempo (14/1), We Are The World (16/1), I'm A Star (20/1), Love Rat (25/1)

Verdict

Plenty of potential in here and this is competitive. Ship Of The Fen could easily get back on track this year and is feared. Glorious Army and Cracker Factory both have the scope to improve now they are stepping up in trip. The short list is headed by KNIGHTLY SPIRIT who needs to bounce back from a disappointing final start in 2017 but has plenty of potential to improve past his opening mark.
  1. Knightly Spirit
  2. Cracker Factory
  3. Ship Of The Fen
