Betting

Forecast

Eric The Third (5/2), Opechee (10/3), Robin De Broome (7/2), Top Chief (4/1), King Cnut (6/1), Spoilt Rotten (7/1), Polo The Mumm (10/1), Ortenzia (12/1), Wisecracker (14/1), Chasing Headlights (20/1)

Verdict

Top Chief was all out to win on Friday and looked to have a hard race. If he has recovered then he would go close and now has the champion jockey on board so has to enter calculations. ERIC THE THIRD is the choice though having proved really consistent of late, showing a good attitude. Despite being 4lb higher that last time he can land the spoils. Opechee and Spoilt Rotten shouldn't be far away if things go their way, while among the chasing debutants King Cnut makes most appeal.
  1. Eric The Third
  2. Top Chief
  3. Opechee
