Betting

Forecast

Ravenswood (15/8), Kings Gold (11/2), Bogardus (7/1), Clenymistra (8/1), Mac O'polo (8/1), Tan Arabiq (12/1), Hussar Ballad (16/1), King's Coinage (20/1), Correggio (20/1), Imperial Focus (25/1), Exclusive Waters (25/1), Lean On Pete (33/1), Pumaflor (40/1), Midnight Warrior (50/1), Mysterial (66/1), Thackeray (100/1)

Verdict

Trainer Ken Slack took this race 12 months ago and his RAVENSWOOD can go one better than when finishing runner-up at Newcastle recently in this competitive looking handicap. The application of blinkers should aid the selection and he can see off Kings Gold who ran well over further last time out. Tan Arabiq has a notable jockey booking and he is taken to claim third.
