Betting

Forecast

What A Welcome (15/8), Stormingin (9/2), Garbanzo (5/1), Zambeasy (10/1), Punkawallah (11/1), Mullarkey (12/1), Psychotic (20/1), Light Of Air (22/1), Top Beak (25/1), Squire (33/1), England Expects (33/1), Tobacco Road (50/1), Miss M (66/1), Golden Nectar (66/1), Dr Julius No (66/1)

Verdict

WHAT A WELCOME can follow-up last weeks victory by taking the opening race on the card for trainer Patrick Chamings. The selection has the ground to suit and has won over further in the past. The consistent Stormingin has placed on each of his last four outings and can claim second ahead of stablemate Light Of Air who was in good form when last in action in this sphere.
