Betting

Forecast

Scaramanga (2/1), Spirit Ridge (5/2), Candidate (5/1), Manor Park (10/1), Vision Clear (14/1), He's Amazing (16/1), Nebuchadnezzar (20/1), Coolongolook (20/1), Mandalayan (25/1), Velvet Vision (28/1), Adjutant (40/1), Westbrook Bertie (66/1)

Verdict

SPIRIT RIDGE does not appear hard done by at the hands of the handicapper on his debut in this sphere and is preferred here to Scaramanga, who is improving and looks a threat. Candidate is another to consider, while Nebuchadnezzar may also be involved.
  1. Spirit Ridge
  2. Scaramanga
  3. Candidate
