Betting

Forecast

The New One (5/2), L'Ami Serge (7/2), Modus (9/2), Rather Be (5/1), Ptit Zig (8/1), Beat That (14/1), Volnay De Thaix (16/1), Old Guard (20/1)

Verdict

The New One is the one to beat on the figures, but MODUS has less to prove in terms of the trip and wouldn't need much more to defeat his higher-rated rival here. He may still have more to offer and can strike a blow for Paul Nicholls in the trainers championship. L'Ami Serge looks the best of the Henderson four on paper, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see Rather Be improve again and take the bronze medal home.
  1. Modus
  2. The New One
