Betting

Forecast

Arlecchino's Arc (7/2), Luxford (5/1), Sharp Operator (15/2), Muraaqeb (9/1), Sea Shack (10/1), Tobacco Road (12/1), Mans Not Trot (14/1), Ronni Layne (16/1), Island Flame (16/1), Carvelas (18/1), Cat Royale (20/1), Foxrush Take Time (25/1), Dor's Law (33/1), Wynfaul The Wizard (66/1), Argent Bleu (66/1)

Verdict

ARLECCHINO'S ARC has won over C&D on his two most recent starts and he can complete a hat-trick by recording a victory in this large field handicap. The selection looks capable of getting the better of Sharp Operator who was placed here on his penultimate start while third place can go the way of Muraaqeb who has been in good form of late.
