Betting

Forecast

Kentucky Kingdom (5/4), Fiction Writer (2/1), Dutch Pursuit (5/1), Shanghai Grace (6/1), Solar Park (16/1), Just Once (50/1), Benji (50/1), Half Full (66/1), Amourie (100/1), Somewhat Sisyphean (150/1)

Verdict

Solar Park is an interesting newcomer worthy of a market check, but the form book suggests this should rest between Dutch Pursuit, who is lumbered with a penalty, Shanghai Grace, Fiction Writer and KENTUCKY KINGDOM. The latter is marginally preferred following an effort rich in promise at Wolverhampton last time.
  1. Kentucky Kingdom
  2. Fiction Writer
  3. Shanghai Grace
