Betting

Forecast

Mount Moriah (9/4), On To Victory (7/2), Weekender (4/1), Raheen House (9/2), Zenon (15/2), Hochfeld (16/1)

Verdict
Raheen House looks to hold a solid chance in this company but does have a penalty to give away, which brings the likes of ON TO VICTORY and Weekender into it. Eve Johnson Houghton's consistent charge gets the nod, with the step up to this trip proving no problem lately and he may improve again. Weekender has to prove himself at the trip but the way he races suggests he may well do that. A race where a case can be made for all six though, and not easy to solve.
  1. On To Victory
  2. Weekender
  3. Raheen House
