Betting

Forecast

Getaway North (11/8), Veiled Secret (5/2), Elixer (4/1), Clondaw Storm (8/1), Life Knowledge (16/1), Peace Approved (20/1)

Verdict

A tricky little contest and not an easy one to unravel despite the small field. Veiled Secret put up a promising performance at Musselburgh last time but he did jump out to his right on a few occasions something that wouldn’t be an asset on this left-handed track. Getaway North has a small amount of ground to make ELIXER after the pair clashed over C&D last time and both look capable of winning in this grade having proved to be better in this sphere. The selection made a mistake at the last time and if he can avoid a similar blunder he may well gain a deserved victory. Clondaw Storm isn’t ruled out whilst note any market confidence in Peace Approved.
  1. Elixer
  2. Getaway North
