Potters Hedger (2/1), Merry Milan (4/1), Longhousesignora (5/1), Little Boy Boru (7/1), I See You Well (8/1), Wishicould (8/1), Ballyheigue Bay (14/1), Steel Bob (16/1), Ballymagroarty Boy (25/1), Landscape (125/1)

Verdict

This staying trip appears to be what Venetia Williams mare LONGHOUSESIGNORA needs based on her last two outings and given the stable are still in good form she’s taken to score again now she’s found her feet in handicap company. Potters Hedger is another improving sort who looks capable at this level having run well at Ascot last time. Little Boy Boru is a recent C&D winner but he will have to improve again to repeat that win now he’s up in class. Steel Bob has looked at home over staying trips and off a mark such as this he really ought to be competitive on his first run for the George Baker stable.
  1. Longhousesignora
  2. Potters Hedger
  3. Steel Bob
