Betting

Forecast

One True King (4/1), Tegerek (5/1), Magic Dancer (5/1), Benny's Bridge (6/1), Wild Max (17/2), Ashington (11/1), Miss Heritage (14/1), Byron Flyer (14/1), Nanabelle (18/1), Clemencia (18/1), Sternrubin (20/1), Hallings Comet (22/1), Scorched Earth (22/1), St Gallen (28/1), Endlessly (28/1), Percy (33/1), Fair Mountain (50/1), Hijran (125/1)

Verdict

ONE TRUE KING readily opened his account at Uttoxeter last time and, provided his lack of experience doesn't hold him back in this much bigger field, he could show an opening mark of 125 to be rather lenient. Nanabelle and Wild Max both have disappointing runs to put behind them, but they're fresh and likely to get back on track.

  1. ONE TRUE KING (IRE)
  2. WILD MAX (GER)
  3. NANABELLE (FR)
