Betting

Forecast

Almashriq (11/8), Muraad (2/1), Search For Light (5/1), Madeeh (9/1), Mutasaamy (20/1), Ghaly (20/1), Piper Arrow (33/1), Helian (50/1), Global Command (66/1), Petite Malle (80/1), Second Sight (80/1), Unplugged (100/1), Thunder And Light (100/1), Dutch Story (100/1), Bricklebrit (150/1), Hurricane Heidi (150/1)

Verdict

MURAAD broke his maiden at the second time of asking on his most recent start and he can follow-up by taking this 16 runner novice event. The selection looks capable of getting the better of his rivals with Almashriq, capable of finishing second on his first attempt at this distance. Third place can go to Search For Light who is unbeaten having won on debut last time out.
