New Abbey Angel (5/2), Blue Havana (3/1), Trautmann (7/2), Falcon's Fire (7/1), Enemy Of The State (10/1), Schindlers Ark (12/1), Melabi (18/1), Mama Said (20/1), Magnum (40/1), Breton Blues (66/1)

Verdict

This race has proved to be a good one for the market leaders with the favourite winning for the past two years and TRAUTMANN is likely to be amongst those to the fore in the betting. His win over C&D when he put away a couple of today’s rivals looks a sound piece of form and he can confirm those placings as he attempts to follow up. Blue Havana has crept up the handicap without winning and ran below-par last time but on her earlier form and with Quinn team in great form she deserves another chance. Melabi would have a squeak on his best form with the Gordon Elliott runner Schindlers Ark hard to fancy on form but worthy of respect if there is market support.
  1. Trautmann
