Betting

Forecast

Fancy Footings (7/4), Raffaello (3/1), Gatsby Cap (7/1), A Step Too Far (8/1), Eyeoweyou (9/1), Force Of Cashen (12/1), Singer (14/1), Puddymore (50/1), Ifyouhaveaminute (50/1)

Verdict
FANCY FOOTINGS took a big step forward on first run for this yard and with the promise of more to come over this extra furlong he can get off the mark. A Step Too Far shaped well last time and in a tricky contest rates the main threat with Gatsby Cap the type to put a rare poor run behind him, completing the short list.
  1. Fancy Footings
  2. A Step Too Far
  3. Gatsby Cap
