Betting

Forecast

Velvet Cognac (11/4), Truckers Cailin (11/4), Clondaw Bisto (7/2), Big Meadow (9/2), In Arrears (11/2), Silent Steps (8/1), River Of Intrigue (14/1), Parsonal (14/1), Hediddodinthe (20/1), Positive Touch (25/1)

Verdict

VELVET COGNAC has been running well over hurdles recently and although he is still a maiden over fences, he has shown enough in chasing to suggest his first victory is not far away so should be favoured. Truckers Cailin must be considered on the basis of her victory at Ffos Las two runs ago in this competitive handicap chase, while Clondaw Bisto is now down to a new career low mark which should allow him to be in contention.
  1. Velvet Cognac
  2. Truckers Cailin
  3. Clondaw Bisto
