Betting

Forecast

Christopher Wood (6/5), Zizaneur (3/1), Faldo (10/3), Fresno Emery (12/1), Brandy James (14/1), Vision Clear (16/1), Toshima (33/1), Duration (150/1), Dharma Rain (200/1)

Verdict

Zizaneur brings good French form to the table and will surely be winning races before too long. Faldo ran a race full of promise at Warwick and could well go one better here with this track likely to suit. CHRISTOPHER WOOD looks a shrewd purchase for connections and he impressed with the way he went through the race at Fontwell and may be able to remain unbeaten over hurdles.
  1. Christopher Wood
  2. Faldo
  3. Zizaneur
