Betting

Forecast

Connect (6/5), Willie John (6/4), Sovereign Debt (10/3), Gabrial (7/2), Dolphin Vista (9/1), Mistiroc (10/1)

Verdict

WILLIE JOHN cost current connections a small fortune, and this Champion Stakes entry can maintain his unbeaten record provided he handles the conditions. Connect revels in the mud and is a C&D handicap winner, so makes most appeal of the others, ahead of Sovereign Debt and Gabrial.
  1. Willie John
  2. Connect
  3. Sovereign Debt
