Betting

Forecast

Northern Express (1/1), Simons King (7/2), Carter Cowboy (13/2), Eclipse De Lunar (8/1), Baileys Derbyday (11/1), Mcgivern (14/1), Annandale (18/1), Prince Ali (25/1), Ravenscraig Castle (28/1), Carn A Chlamain (66/1), Ayr Empress (100/1)

Verdict

NORTHERN EXPRESS looked better the further he went when making a winning debut in good style at Beverley 3 weeks ago, so he's taken to defy a penalty over this slightly longer trip. Simons King is an interesting newcomer being a well-bred son of Kingman, so it will be interesting to see how he holds up in the betting.

  1. NORTHERN EXPRESS (IRE)
  2. SIMONS KING (IRE)
  3. ANNANDALE (IRE)
