Betting

Forecast

Ironclad (10/11), Roma Bangkok (15/8), I'm Available (6/1), Lumination (16/1), Moongazer (25/1), Honey Bear (25/1), Oliver Hardy (33/1), Ardimento (40/1), Poor Auld Paddy (50/1), Achaeus (50/1), Sweet Poem (50/1), Swiss Cheer (66/1)

Verdict

There's no Group entries for the well-bred IRONCLAD, which tempers enthusiasm for him a bit, but he's bred to be decent and may still prove too good for the two winners in the field, Roma Bangkok and Moongazer. Both made a good impression when successful and preference of that pair is just for Moongazer, who will come on plenty for her Lingfield debut. I'm Available is the other that makes some appeal.
  1. Ironclad
  2. Moongazer
  3. Roma Bangkok
