Gunnery (9/4), Totterdown (7/2), Smarty Wild (9/2), Eldorado Allen (7/1), Distingo (12/1), Blu Cavalier (12/1), Mill Green (14/1), Ainchea (16/1), Ruacana (20/1), John Constable (25/1), Remiluc (40/1)

Verdict

A good handicap to conclude the card and one that has several options with Gunnery sure to be in the thoughts of many after his 12L demolition job at Doncaster last Saturday. He may not be able to lead this time and a quick return may not be suitable. TOTTERDOWN has twice run his field ragged over C&D and despite a 12lb rise in the weights be may be able to make similar tactics work again this time around. The Tizzard pair Eldorado Allen and Ainchea are both C&D winners returning from long breaks and it will be interesting to see what the market says about that pair. Mill Green and Smarty Wild are two others to consider in what looks a competitive finale.
  1. Totterdown
  2. Gunnery
  3. Eldorado Allen
