Betting

Forecast

Little Stevie (5/2), Wisecracker (4/1), Secret Melody (6/1), Getaway North (7/1), Agentleman (8/1), Buyer Beware (10/1), Thomas Blossom (14/1), My Renaissance (14/1), Inca Gold (28/1), Mac Cennetig (33/1), Bally Lagan (66/1)

Verdict

A low-grade affair with several who have the propensity to flatter only to deceive. Four of this field contested a similar event at Stratford recently with the previously (could still be) hard to win with Wisecracker doing best with a sound second and putting to bed, for now, doubts about his attitude. That form has been franked by the subsequent win of the fourth so that also brings Agentleman into the argument although his lack of finishing effort also leaves a question mark. There’s no guarantee that Secret Melody will reproduce his Bangor effort and C&D winner LITTLE STEVIE looks the best option with his fitness assured. Any market support for Inca Gold should be noted.
