Forecast

Gardiners Hill (11/10), William Money (9/2), Bredon Hill Lad (13/2), Phangio (10/1), Triptico (10/1), Edeiff's Lad (14/1), Catch A Thief (16/1), Bennachie (16/1), Long John (20/1), Ballyegan (20/1), Creative Boru (66/1)

Verdict
A very tricky end to the card, which appears to revolve around whether GARDINERS HILL can cope with the drop in trip under a 7lb penalty. Phangio and Bredon Hill Lad can make this a good test, but both have their flaws. The latter does come here on the back of a solid effort last time out, so may represent the best alternative if the selection lacks a turn of foot at this distance. William Money is another to monitor in the betting as he is well treated just now but it’s difficult to gauge how he has transitioned since switching yards. 1. Gardiners Hill 2. Bredon Hill Lad 3. William Money
