Betting

Forecast

Poet's Prince (10/11), Victory Chime (5/4), Come On Come On (13/8), Nathan (4/1), Rotherwick (15/2)

Verdict

Rotherwick and Victory Chime are discounted off their current marks but the remaining three are hard to split. Poet's Prince has the standout pieces of form judged on his exploits in May/June but his last two runs when he has refused to settle would make him hard to fancy, particularly as this may be tactical. Come On Come On has been given a break since his last run and the suspicion is that connections have been waiting for an opportunity to get him on better ground. NATHAN is another who may have found fast ground against him last time when he was produced looking all over the winner only to falter. He will be more at home here over this shorter trip.
  1. Nathan
  2. Come On Come On
  3. Poet's Prince
