Betting

Forecast

Bazarov (11/4), Boruma (4/1), Putting Green (6/1), Ritual Of Senses (13/2), Aengus (7/1), Caro Des Flos (8/1), Green Zone (9/1), Lough Kent (10/1), Oscar Ceremony (20/1), Christmas Twenty (33/1), Jeu De Mots (33/1)

Verdict

A competitive start to the evening card; the dropped in grade Boruma with Brian Hughes back on board has to be of interest although the return of his usual headgear would make him even more of a player along with his stablemate Lough Kent who appreciate the idiosyncratic nature of this course. Caro Des Flos will appreciate a return to this trip especially with the handicapper not tinkering with his mark while Aengus should be a big player if he can build on his Kelso run. BAZAROV is improving quickly though and his fast and fluent jumping style coupled with his ability to front run may well make him difficult to catch around here off what still looks a decent mark.
  1. Bazarov
  2. Caro Des Flos
  3. Boruma
