Betting

Forecast

Steaming (10/11), Key Bid (6/4), Hurricane Hollow (6/1), Unblinking (16/1), Sambuca Nera (25/1), Nuova Scuola (25/1), Nightdress (25/1), Formative (25/1), Toast Of London (50/1), Company Trader (66/1)

Verdict

The looks a straight up match between KEY BID and Steaming. The first named has experience of this C&D and was well supported in his bid to get off the mark here last week. The fitting of cheekpieces can be expected to help him focus and he is fancied gain compensation for that near miss. Hurricane Hollow's effort at Newcastle is the best piece of form that any of the rest have to offer.
  1. Key Bid
