Betting

Forecast

Snow Leopardess (10/3), Canelo (9/2), Spiritofthegames (9/2), Windsor Avenue (5/1), Springtown Lake (11/2), The Dutchman (11/1), Guitar Pete (12/1), Wandrin Star (14/1), Beau Bay (14/1)

Verdict

A fiercely-competitive handicap chase in which CANELO gets the nod on the back of a cracking second at Newbury in a race that's already proving strong form. All the others have something to recommend them, with the improving Snow Leopardess regarded as the main threat ahead of Wandrin Star.

  1. CANELO (IRE)
  2. SNOW LEOPARDESS
  3. WANDRIN STAR (IRE)
