Betting

Forecast

Francky Du Berlais (7/4), Templehills (6/1), Dream Bolt (6/1), Everlanes (15/2), Hey Bud (17/2), Mon Palois (17/2), Denmead (9/1), Cherokee Bill (14/1), Smuggler's Blues (18/1), Fort Gabriel (25/1), Lickpenny Larry (50/1)

Verdict

FRANCKY DU BERLAIS should be able to defy this mark if he can replicate the sort of form he showed when making a winning return over hurdles, so he gets the nod ahead of Denmead, who has the potential to do better as a chaser. Templehills is another one to consider having re-joined Nigel Twiston-Davies.

  1. FRANCKY DU BERLAIS (FR)
  2. DENMEAD
  3. TEMPLEHILLS (IRE)
