Betting

Forecast

Twilight Payment (13/8), Grandee (9/2), Laws Of Spin (9/2), Savannah Storm (6/1), Motherland (13/2), The Tartan Spartan (10/1), Benkei (33/1), My Brother (40/1)

Verdict

Twilight Payment is a rock-solid option here and seems certain to be in the mix, he doesn't seem to run bad races and deserves the maximum of respect as such. It might however pay to side instead with GRANDEE for the win. He was a convincing winner at this level last month before finding things too hot in the Irish Derby. This is more his level and the Harrington team are once again starting to pick up pace. Savannah Storm could have plenty more to offer and is worth a look while the progressive Laws Of Spin must also command attention representing Closutton.
