Betting

Forecast

What A Welcome (6/4), Chance To Dream (7/2), Nazzaa (7/1), Genetics (8/1), The Otmoor Poet (12/1), Zamperini (14/1), Tiar Na Nog (16/1), Ravenous (16/1), Carry Me Home (25/1), Planetoid (100/1)

Verdict

One can so often look past the immediately obvious and with WHAT A WELCOME raised another 8lb for his latest Sandown success, there is the temptation to do so tonight. However, we should refrain from such thinking as there's every chance that he'll take the winning sequence further in a race which isn't quite as competitive as could be expected for the grade. Clear dangers to the selection include Nazzaa and Chance To Dream, but their stamina reserves are up for discussion, so the past C&D winner and proven stayer Ravenous could be the most sensible forecast play.
  1. What A Welcome
  2. Ravenous
  3. Chance To Dream
