Betting

Forecast

Shuhood (3/1), Tight Lines (7/2), Tobruk (7/2), Orange Suit (4/1), Indomeneo (8/1), Ad Libitum (10/1), Windsor Cross (12/1)

Verdict

The John Gosden-trained Tobruk will be a popular selection, and open to plenty of further improvement she might simply prove better than these rivals. However, she's likely to be well found in the market, and this race is far from a gift. Windsor Cross could also have more to give now that connections have discovered that he stays further than 7f, whilst the admirably tough Ad Libitum is never dismissed lightly. However, Tobruk is taken on with TIGHT LINES who is clearly improving from race to race. She doesn't know how to lie down in the heat of battle and might feasibly be a fraction wiser than the likely market leader.
  1. Tight Lines
  2. Tobruk
  3. Ad Libitum
