Betting

Forecast

Medahim (9/4), Lake Volta (11/4), Top Score (7/2), Mankib (9/2), Amazour (7/1)

Verdict

All of these carry some form of risk with Top Score potentially facing a stiff task at the weights if some of his rivals produce their best. Medahim is attractively treated on his 2017 form but has been some way below those levels this term and Amazour has regularly failed from marks as high as this. Mankib is entitled to come on for his recent return from a long break, but there were few signs he was a winner in waiting. LAKE VOLTA has contested two Group 3s and a Listed event since producing a career best at Epsom in June which initially earned him a mark of 112. He races off a more realistic weight this time and that makes him the one to beat.
  1. Lake Volta
  2. Top Score
  3. Medahim
