Betting

Forecast

Bazarov (11/4), Lamh Ar Lamh (11/4), Kristjano (6/1), Brunel Woods (9/1), Two Sams (12/1), We've Got Payet (14/1), Dr Oakley (16/1), Veiled Secret (20/1), Cushuish (20/1), John Biscuit (20/1), Bob Maxwell (25/1), Bentons Lad (25/1), Diamond Rose (25/1), Yalla Habibti (25/1), Kayf Tiger (33/1), Battleofthesomme (33/1), Why Lie (66/1), The Ibbster (66/1)

Verdict

Quantity rather than quality to kick off the card with, and a few have chances. Lamh Ar Lamh looks sure to be in the shake-up given she's one of only one of a handful to come into this in any sort of form, and simialr can be said for Kristjano after his Wincanton win, but his overall profile isn't as convincing. Old John Biscuit could surprise a few after a break and the likes of We've Got Payet and Battleofthesomme need a look in the market, but DR OAKLEY ran too bad to be true on his handicap debut and is given another chance.
  1. Dr Oakley
  2. Lamh Ar Lamh
  3. John Biscuit
