Betting

Forecast

Trans Express (5/2), Casterly Rock (7/2), Watcombe Heights (9/2), Zalvados (9/2), Nayati (5/1), River Bray (10/1), Indian Harbour (20/1), Primal Focus (40/1), Comrade Conrad (40/1)

Verdict

An interesting contest with a couple having to bounce back to their best to be competitive here but that may not be beyond them. ZALVADOS disappointed last time but he’s now dropped in class and a repeat of his Betfair Hurdle run would make him look a generous price for this. Nayati also needs build on his comeback run but looks more than capable of doing so off his current mark. Casterly Rock is still lightly-raced and worth investigating off this mark with this trip looking to suit. Trans Express would be of interest if his stable were in better form whilst it will be fascinating to see what the market makes of the mark awarded to Primal Focus.
  1. Zalvados
  2. Casterly Rock
  3. Nayati
