Betting

Forecast

Pippin (5/2), Nebuchadnezzar (10/3), Spice War (4/1), Encryption (13/2), Construct (7/1), Grandscape (10/1), Roundabout Kitten (10/1), Optimum Time (11/1), Cleverley (14/1), Coal Stock (16/1), Fenisa's Hook (20/1), Say About It (40/1), Time To Perfection (50/1), Apex Predator (50/1)

Verdict

There's not a huge amount of depth so it's worth taking a chance that PIPPIN will handle the likely faster conditions off the back of a win in a race that looked above average for its grade. He's a physically impressive type so it's possible that he's just taken time to fulfil his potential. Spice War has shown enough on his last two starts to suggest he can place again and perhaps there could be improvement in the new headgear. This looks the sort of test of stamina that will bring the best out of Fenisa's Hook while Encryption is worth a check in the betting.
  1. Pippin
  2. Spice War
  3. Fenisa's Hook
