Betting

Forecast

Beholden (4/6), Chaztara (7/2), Mrs Thatcher (7/1), Southfield Megan (8/1), Edward Blue (12/1), Presenting Yeats (28/1), Little Jessture (40/1), Dark Storm (80/1), Ivorsalegend (150/1)

Verdict

There was quite a lot to like about the way BEHOLDEN won on debut over C&D earlier this month and thogh he has no easy task conceding weight all round he may prove good enough to maintain his unbeaten record. With her stable going great guns of late newcomer Chaztara might prove the biggest danger to the selection. She's bred for this game and a bold show would not surprise first time out. Mrs Thatcher and Southfield Megan are other newcomers worth noting for market support, while of those with previous experience Presenting Yeats has a decent pedigree and ran better than his finishing position indicates when 11th on debut at Wincanton in January.
  1. Beholden
  2. Chaztara
