Betting

Forecast

Pink Gin (3/1), Lac Sacre (7/2), Cailleach Annie (5/1), Jack In A Box (13/2), Paddy The Oscar (8/1), Loughalder (8/1), Mountain Of Mourne (8/1), Richardofdoccombe (25/1)

Verdict
The one that interests most here is the consistent PINK GIN, who made an encouraging debut over fences at Newbury last time and is entitled to come on plenty for that run in conditions that should suit him. Lac Sacre could be the one to chase him home after running very well over C&D last time to finish second to a runaway winner, while Cailleach Annie needs to put last time's disappointment behind her, but looks up with the best of these on the pick of her form.
  1. Pink Gin
  2. Lac Sacre
  3. Cailleach Annie
