Betting

Forecast

Walk Waterford (6/4), Pink Eyed Pedro (3/1), Elkstone (4/1), Polished Rock (9/2), Hope's Wishes (16/1), Monty Massini (50/1)

Verdict

WALK WATERFORD can follow up his recent Fontwell success by defying a penalty and conceding weight to all of his rivals in this novices' handicap contest. Pink Eyed Pedro looks feasibly handicapped and can take second on handicap debut while third place can go to Elkstone who has been running well in recent starts.
