Betting

Forecast

Sirobbie (5/4), Silent Encore (3/1), Glorious Boru (9/2), Du Destin (9/2), Brandy James (11/2), Oldabbey Bridge (33/1), Moroval (100/1)

Verdict

DU DESTIN could be better than these and represents top connections so gets a fairly confident vote. He ran well when last seen in action and this step up in trip looks the right call. Sirobbie beat Silent Encore by a couple of lengths here last time and there shouldn't be much between them, although the former looks to have more scope for improvement. Glorious Boru is not completely out of it but needs to raise his game despite bottom weight.
  1. Du Destin
