Betting

Forecast

Bell Rock (4/1), Ouzo (4/1), Ebury (4/1), Wait Forever (15/2), Arctic Sound (15/2), Zhui Feng (8/1), Baltic Baron (12/1), Shelir (22/1), Kuwait Currency (33/1), Kryptos (40/1)

Verdict

Ebury was most unfortunate not to score (Ouzo fourth) when finishing with a rare old rattle over C&D in November, and the handicapper has taken evasive action with a 3lb weights rise. Martyn Meade's charge sports a reliable profile (12012) so ought to be firmly in the mix. However, at slightly more rewarding odds there are possible each-way options, namely Bell Rock (for the red-hot Andrew Balding) and SHELIR. The selection is one of two runners for the shrewd David O'Meara (also saddles Baltic Baron) and the Helmsley-based trainer so often excels with others cast-offs.
  1. Shelir
  2. Ebury
  3. Bell Rock
