Betting

Forecast

Arctic Light (3/1), Boris Grishenko (3/1), Ciankyle (7/2), Guido Reni (4/1), Jessamine (8/1), Oskar High (8/1), Ted Bach (9/1), Racing Stripes (10/1), Solar Heat (12/1), Wildcatted (25/1), Wicket (25/1), End Play (33/1), Baby Bellini (33/1), Grinditout (33/1), Dandy Bridge (50/1)

Verdict

Handicap debutant BORIS GRISHENKO can register his first victory over hurdles now switched to handicaps. The selection represents a top yard and can get the better of Arctic Light who can finish runner-up on his return from a break. Third place can go to Jessamine who is lightly raced over hurdles and remains open to improvement.
  1. Boris Grishenko
  2. Arctic Light
  3. Jessamine
