Verdict

This looks best left to AIR NAVIGATOR, who was in the money when falling here last time, and whose previous second at Wincanton has been franked by the pair he split. Kings Walk looked a big threat to Orchardstown Cross here last time, and a repeat would give him every chance, while Turtle Wars has yet to click over fences, but is the type to do better at some point.
  1. Air Navigator
  2. Kings Walk
  3. Turtle Wars
