Betting

Forecast

Fusil Raffles (4/7), Grand Sancy (11/4), Christopher Wood (6/1), Brandon Castle (10/1), Beat The Judge (20/1), Top Beak (125/1)

Verdict

FUSIL RAFFLES makes his anticipated return having looked an exciting juvenile and it will be a shock if he can't lay down an early marker for the season. Grand Sancy is the most likely to take advantage if the favourite was to under perform while Christopher Wood may pick up the bronze medal.
  1. Fusil Raffles
  2. Grand Sancy
  3. Christopher Wood
