Betting

Forecast

Shelford (3/1), Above Board (9/2), Tanarpino (9/2), Bells 'n' Banjos (6/1), Dr Robin (8/1), Minella On Line (8/1), Treaty Girl (11/1), Belmount (12/1), Goohar (14/1), Ganbei (16/1), Call Me Vic (20/1), Big Sound (20/1)

Verdict

SHELFORD drops markedly in grade here and having run well off this mark in the past he can register his second victory over fences in this competitive handicap chase. Trainer Dan Skelton is in good form at present (17/60) and his charge can see off Tanarpino who has placed on five of his last six outings while Treaty Girl can finish third on her first start since wind surgery.
