Betting

Forecast

Rizzardo (7/2), Eureu Du Boulay (9/2), Compadre (5/1), Vice Et Vertu (5/1), Barbrook Star (5/1), Aubusson (7/1), Miami Present (20/1), Fr Humphrey (25/1), Quick Brew (33/1)

Verdict

EUREU DU BOULAY is back to the sort of mark he made hay from over fences at the end of 2018 so is worth siding with to build on a reasonable reappearance run over hurdles. Vice Et Vertu certainly isn't one for maximum faith but he did run well on his reappearance, while Barbrook Star is another with quirks but does return off a winning mark.

  1. EUREU DU BOULAY (FR)
  2. VICE ET VERTU (FR)
  3. BARBROOK STAR (IRE)
