Betting

Forecast

Gossip Column (11/8), Mr Reckless (2/1), Macaque (5/1), Gabrials Centurion (11/2), Jetstream (14/1)

Verdict

MR RECKLESS and Gossip Column are the two that stand out, with narrow preference for the top weight who is in form and didn't have things drop his way at HQ last time. Gossip Column won't be easy to beat having stuck to his guns at Sandown recently and should be suited by this longer challenge. Gabrials Centurion should also appreciate the step up in trip and a bold show is not out of the question. The other pair, Macaque and Jetstream, have something to prove at present.
  1. Mr Reckless
  2. Gossip Column
  3. Gabrials Centurion
