Betting

Forecast

Alfaatik (2/1), Apparate (5/1), Sleeping Lion (5/1), Volcanic Sky (13/2), Calculation (8/1), Hochfeld (11/1), Solo Saxophone (14/1), High Wells (18/1)

Verdict

On the back of a lengthy absence/gelding operation, ALFAATIK repaid connections' faith in him when successful at York's Ebor meeting last month, deserving of extra credit in coming off a steady gallop. The step up in trip promises to suit and there may well be more to come from him. The ease back in trip will hold no fears for Volcanic Sky and he is feared, along with Calculation.

  1. ALFAATIK
  2. VOLCANIC SKY
  3. CALCULATION
