Betting

Forecast

Diakali (9/4), One For Billy (7/2), Caid Du Lin (9/2), Storm Home (5/1), Sister Sibyl (8/1), Dear Sire (9/1), All Set To Go (16/1)

Verdict
DIAKALI looks like a nice prospect for Gary Moore this year and the nine-year-old has made an impressive start to life over fences with wins at Fontwell and most recently Newton Abbot. Provided the 133-day absence doesn't find him out, he could be hard to beat in his belated hat-trick bid despite a step up in class. One For Billy is taken to reverse the Worcester form with Caid Du Lin from last time out when only beaten by a short margin and the son of the late Midnight Legend finds himself on 7lb better terms with his rival this time around.
  1. Diakali
  2. One For Billy
  3. Caid Du Lin
