Betting

Forecast

Muckamore (2/5), Vinnie's Getaway (5/2), Tuscan Pearl (20/1), Legende de Minuit (25/1), Janeslittlevoice (25/1), Kingsmill Gin (28/1), Ragamuffin (33/1), Gorcombe's Rascal (200/1)

Verdict
It's difficult to get away from the chances of the six-year-old MUCKAMORE for the trainer/jockey combination of Nigel Twiston-Davies and son Sam. The Olly Murphy-trained Vinnie's Getaway can emerge as the biggest danger following a string of promising efforts last summer. The Jeremy Scott-trained Tuscan Pearl made a pleasing return at Huntingdon earlier this month while Kingsmill Gin could go well at a price.
  1. Muckamore
