Betting

Forecast

Cavalry Scout (5/2), Mistercobar (10/3), Kingston Mimosa (5/1), Indian Native (13/2), Donatello Mail (10/1), Leverock Lass (11/1), Debden Bank (14/1), Arcade Attraction (18/1), Watar Allstar (20/1), O'Rahilly (20/1), Leave My Alone (33/1)

Verdict

DONATELLO MAIL only just failed to get up over shorter here last time, and with the extra yardage certain to be in his favour, he looks the likeliest winner. Mistercobar also finished second over 2m here on his latest start, and looks a danger, along with bottom-weight Cavalry Scout, who has stepped forward a little more on his last two starts in this sphere.
  1. Donatello Mail
  2. Mistercobar
  3. Cavalry Scout
