Betting

Forecast

The Highlander (8/11), Supreme Danehill (2/1), Kristian Gray (10/1), Fitz Volonte (20/1), Bit Of A Barney (25/1), Mr Cardle (50/1)

Verdict
Given his solid recent form and steady progress made over the last year, THE HIGHLANDER appeals as the likeliest winner of the finale. Bit Of A Barney can make sure this is a good test and is forwarded as a more potent threat than Supreme Danehill, who is very much respected but may need a more demanding test of his stamina these days. Kristian Gray is unexposed and has more scope than most; he is one to also seriously consider if the market vibes are positive. 1. The Highlander 2. Bit Of A Barney 3. Supreme Danehill
