Betting

Forecast

Alemaratalyoum (5/2), Tukhoom (4/1), Mutaabeq (9/2), Mountain Rescue (10/1), Shady Mccoy (10/1), Love Dreams (10/1), Key Player (10/1), Glen Shiel (12/1), Enigmatic (12/1), Plunger (12/1), Zap (25/1), Taurean Star (33/1)

Verdict

Alemaratalyoum would be a player if taking his chance (engaged overnight at Chelmsford) but LOVE DREAMS has been put in well under his official mark in this optional claimer, and that makes him a major player. Tukhoom is also 5lb well in based on his official mark and won a similar race at Sandown last time, so must be on the shortlist.
  1. Love Dreams
  2. Tukhoom
  3. Alemaratalyoum
