Betting

Forecast

Deinonychus (11/4), Brancaster (3/1), First Dance (3/1), Lightly Squeeze (4/1), War Brigade (4/1), Mauricio (11/2), Born To Please (33/1), Bold Statement (66/1)

Verdict

There is little chance of finding an attractively handicapper and in-form sort in a race such as this but WAR BRIGADE had looked a likely future winner at Ripon penultimately before disappointing at Newbury so he gets the vote to bounce back to form. Another to consider is First Dance who ran well enough to merits respect at Newcastle last time out while Brancaster is an interesting sort despite having run poorly this season because he won both starts at this course last term.
  1. War Brigade
  2. First Dance
  3. Brancaster
