Betting

Forecast

Fenlons Court (3/1), Bubble O'Clock (4/1), Cheltenam De Vaige (5/1), Duc Kauto (11/2), Oxwich Bay (7/1), Gentleman Moore (9/1), Trumps Benefit (12/1), Ballyknock Cloud (12/1), Gold Mountain (16/1)

Verdict

DUC KAUTO is the choice after doing well in all three chases last season and he remains open to further improvement. The absence is not a concern as he won first time out last term. Oxwich Bay was running well enough at Southwell last week until unseating rider and is feared with that outing under his belt, and Cheltenam De Vaige may not be far away if ready for this first run back with his former handler. Trumps Benefit may prove best of the remainder.
  1. Duc Kauto
  2. Oxwich Bay
  3. Cheltenam De Vaige
