Betting

Forecast

Crossed My Mind (3/1), Chesterfield King (4/1), Great Khan (9/2), Grand Partner (5/1), Hardback (5/1), Gran Geste (7/1), Destin D'Ajonc (7/1), Charlie Stout (7/1), Golden Spear (20/1), Pyromaniac (20/1), The King Of Brega (33/1)

Verdict

GREAT KHAN can follow up last months maiden success by making a winning handicap debut in this competitive looking affair. The selection has the ground conditions and trip to suit today and can get the better of likely favourite Crossed My Mind who looks the pick of owner JP McManus' contingent. Hardback was a winner here a couple of months back and he can claim third on this occasion.
  1. Great Khan
  2. Crossed My Mind
  3. Hardback
