Betting

Forecast

Westend Story (9/2), Molineaux (6/1), Sametegal (7/1), Jerrysback (8/1), As You Like (9/1), Larry (9/1), Bennys King (10/1), Highway One O One (10/1), Rocky's Treasure (10/1), Divine Spear (12/1), Drumcliff (14/1), Wilde Blue Yonder (20/1), Joueur Bresilien (20/1), Tiquer (33/1), Cap Du Nord (50/1), Minella For Me (50/1), Utility (66/1)

Verdict

A cracking handicap in prospect. Topweight Jerrysback has some very solid form to bring with him to this first handicap outing and he could go very well. Highway One O One has a squeak if bouncing back, while Molineaux, the returning Tiquer, Larry and Westend Story are all of interest. Bennys King is respected, and Divine Spear would be interesting if supported. However, a chance is taken on SAMETEGAL. He is nicely treated and there will have been no chances taken over his wellbeing after such a layoff, so he is taken to return with a win.
  1. Sametegal
  2. Molineaux
  3. Jerrysback
