Betting

Forecast

Christopher Wood (10/11), Lucky Flight (9/2), Dear Sire (9/2), For Three (8/1), Goldencard (9/1), Skiddaw Valleys (10/1)

Verdict

LUCKY FLIGHT is unbeaten in two starts over obstacles and he can maintain that unbeaten record by registering a handicap debut success in this small field event. Christopher Wood is dropping markedly in class here and he can finish runner-up on his first outing since wind surgery while third place can go to Skiddaw Valleys who is switched to handicaps on his first start since last May.
  1. Lucky Flight
  2. Christopher Wood
  3. Skiddaw Valleys
