Betting

Forecast

Pond Road (7/4), Three In One (7/2), Definately Vinnie (6/1), Gonnabegood (6/1), Velvet Cognac (8/1), Jimmy (10/1), Robin De Broome (12/1), Over The Arch (33/1), Ballinamona Flyer (50/1)

Verdict

He's adept at such tasks but even Olly Murphy is struggling to get to the bottom of Robin De Broome, who has been prominent in the betting twice since joining his yard. He sports new headgear in latest attempts to get him firing. Three In One has been cut some slack by the assessor and ran better on handicap bow when last spotted, while Gonnabegood could hit form again after a break and Sam Twiston-Davies' presence suggests better is anticipated from Velvet Cognac. DEFINITELY VINNIE has run well in recent starts at Warwick and Ffos Las and is eased 2lb, getting him a tentative vote in a race where few are convincing.
  1. Definately Vinnie
  2. Three In One
  3. Velvet Cognac
