Betting

Forecast

The Secrets Out (9/2), Bird For Life (9/2), Hallingham (13/2), Magic Beans (7/1), Sanches (7/1), The Juggler (10/1), Tapdancealltheway (11/1), Garcon De Soleil (12/1), Bergholt (12/1), Howardian Hills (16/1), Ablaze (20/1), Mr Lando (20/1), Melabi (25/1), Saint Helena (40/1)

Verdict

Sanches ran well enough at Kempton to suggest he can make his presence felt, while Mr Lando is not without hope after a recent win over jumps at Plumpton. The selection, though, is GARCON DE SOLEIL, who won at this track on heavy ground last time and can defy a 7lb weight rise. Bird For Life is in good heart and is considered, along with Bergholt, who was well backed last time only to fluff the start.
  1. Garcon De Soleil
  2. Sanches
  3. Mr Lando
