Betting

Forecast

Between The Waters (9/2), Diplomatico (5/1), Agentleman (6/1), Overtoujay (6/1), Two Hoots (7/1), League Of His Own (10/1), Marju's Quest (14/1), Exclusive Rights (14/1), Falcos (16/1), Monar Lad (16/1), Hurricane Rita (16/1), Citadel (16/1), Our Uncle Pat (80/1), The Society Man (100/1)

Verdict

AGENTLEMAN ran well to finish runner-up last time and he can go one better in what looks a highly competitive affair. The selection has placed here already this season and can see off Citadel who can put his jumping issues behind him by finishing runner-up on debut for this yard. Two Hoots has placed on his two most recent chase starts and can do so once more.
  1. Agentleman
  2. Citadel
  3. Two Hoots
