Betting

Forecast

My Swallow (5/6), Ebnzaidoon (5/2), Villeurbanne (12/1), Dejame Paso (12/1), Bullace (16/1), Beijing Billy (20/1), Beastie Boy (22/1), Entwine (33/1)

Verdict

MY SWALLOW proved friendless in the betting but showed plenty of ability nevertheless when sixth in a C&D maiden that promises to throw up plenty of winners 24 days ago. He can put that experience to good use and make it second time lucky. Ebnzaidoon is a very appealing newcomer for the powerful John Gosden stable and is feared, along with Beastie Boy.

  1. MY SWALLOW
  2. EBNZAIDOON (USA)
  3. BEASTIE BOY (IRE)
