Betting

Forecast

Quick Breath (7/2), Ghayadh (8/1), General Jack (8/1), Iconic Knight (9/1), Jack Taylor (10/1), Procedure (10/1), Beyond Equal (12/1), Go Roo (12/1), Goodnight Girl (14/1), Qaaraat (14/1), Cosmopolitan Queen (14/1), Your Choice (14/1), Popsicle (16/1), The Great Dandini (20/1), Ragstone View (33/1), N Over J (33/1), Mewtow (33/1), Ragstone Road (50/1)

Verdict

Beyond Equal caught the eye on his first run since being gelded and may be primed to do better this time. He is well worth checking in the betting, but the vote goes to QUICK BREATH, who won well at Windsor on his return and appears to be on the upgrade. A host of dangers are headed by Procedure, Go Roo, Iconic Knight, Jack Taylor and Goodnight Girl.
  1. Quick Breath
  2. Beyond Equal
  3. Go Roo
