Victorious in a 7f handicap on good-to-firm going early last month. Not beaten far off this 5lb higher mark in two subsequent starts and market support would be notable.

Betting

Forecast

Medieval (9/4), Majestic Mac (5/1), Duchess Of Avon (7/1), Forseti (15/2), De Vegas Kid (9/1), Water Diviner (10/1), Roller (14/1), Poetic Force (16/1), Key Player (16/1), Pour La Victoire (16/1), Hedging (20/1), Baltic Prince (66/1)

Verdict

DUCHESS OF AVON has shown good form this campaign and she can register a second C&D victory by taking the feature race on the card. The selection has the forecast underfoot conditions to suit and she can get the better of her rivals with Majestic Mac, who has been running well in defeat this season capable of finishing runner-up ahead of De Vegas Kid who has won two of his three starts this year.
  1. Duchess Of Avon
