Betting

Forecast

Zaaki (5/2), Poet's Prince (11/4), Best Blue (5/1), Ode To Autumn (6/1), Beautiful Memory (7/1), Desert Wind (8/1), Macaque (25/1)

Verdict

Few of these are attractively weighted and much depends on whether Zaaki is as good as his juvenile form eventually proved. He faces a tough task nevertheless in trying to concede 15lb to POET'S PRINCE. The Middleham raider has improved with each run, handles AW surfaces and reappears before the handicapper assesses another career best last time. Desert Wind has landed a trio of races that have worked out well and he appears fairly weighted on his handicap bow.
  1. Poet's Prince
  2. Desert Wind
  3. Zaaki
