Betting

Forecast

Salamanca School (2/1), Elham Valley (11/4), Bealach (3/1), Lady Magda (5/1), Jen's Fella (14/1), Pope Gregory (33/1), Lemon Song (33/1), Penny Diamond (66/1), Royal Charmer (150/1)

Verdict

ELHAM VALLEY hasn't really gone on since his win at Lingfield earlier this year. He should be able to make his presence felt in this company for the same jockey/trainer combination who took this contest last year. Bealach gets the vote for second with the cheekpieces quickly discarded after his Sandown flop, while Salamanca School is surely capable of better than what he's shown so far this year.

  1. ELHAM VALLEY (FR)
  2. BEALACH (IRE)
  3. SALAMANCA SCHOOL (FR)
