Betting

Forecast

Enigmatic (4/1), Lord Clenaghcastle (5/1), Zlatan (6/1), Buzz Lightyere (13/2), Optimum Time (7/1), Pour La Victoire (10/1), Andalusite (10/1), Pastoral Player (16/1), Pendo (16/1), Harry Beau (16/1), Tigerwolf (25/1)

Verdict

The one element of this race that shouldn’t be lacking is a decent pace with the likes of Harry Beau and Andalusite looking to go forward and with a good pace almost guaranteed last year’s winner LORD CLENAGHCASTLE is taken to follow-up arriving as he did last year on the back of a victory; he’s only off a mark 2lb higher than last year. Course specialists Pour La Victoire and Buzz Lightyere both come into this in good form and have to be respected while Enigmatic still looks on a dangerous mark off the back of a break. Zlatan should be an ideal sort for a race like this but he just can’t be relied on at the business end of the race.
  1. Lord Clenaghcastle
  2. Enigmatic
  3. Pour La Victoire
