Betting

Forecast

Glengar (9/4), Waitonit (5/2), Jen's Boy (4/1), Eclair Des Sablons (15/2), Oscar Maguire (12/1), Friends Don't Ask (20/1), Quasha (28/1), Oscar Nomination (50/1), Elysian Prince (50/1)

Verdict
Experience is often an important factor in this type of contest and GLENGAR scores highly on that factor having had both his chasing runs here winning easily over C&D last time in the manner of an improving type who is at the right end of the handicap and he’s taken to defy his penalty. This is a stiffer task than last time though with Jen’s Boy and Waitonit both coming from stables which are more than capable of producing a winner first-time out over fences, the duo having shown ability over hurdles. Oscar Maguire needs to bounce back but can’t be ruled out and Éclair Des Sablons looks as though he’ll enjoy this test more than he did the smaller obstacles.
  1. Glengar
