Betting

Forecast

Fenlons Court (9/4), Good News (10/3), Lee Side Lady (5/1), King Cool (7/1), Hier Encore (11/1), Fu Fu (12/1), Mab Dab (12/1), Tipalong Tyler (20/1), Bright Saffron (20/1), Mr Fitzroy (20/1), Invicta Lake (28/1)

Verdict

HIER ENCORE has gone close on a couple of occasions at this course this season and over this longer trip than his latest effort, he can prevail for his opening success of the campaign. Good News failed in his hat-trick attempt at Warwick last time but on his return to this winning C&D, he is likely to perform much better, while Fenlons Court has been eased 5lb to a mark which should give him a great chance of finishing in the placings.
  1. Hier Encore
