Betting

Forecast

Waady (10/11), Kyllang Rock (5/1), Sir Robert Cheval (7/1), Mirza (15/2), A Momentofmadness (11/1), Razzmatazz (16/1), Mister Trader (16/1), Just Glamorous (33/1)

Verdict
Not the strongest of Listed events and it's hard to look beyond WAADY and Mirza who finished fourth and fifth respectively in a Newbury Group 3 two weeks ago. The former is taken to confirm superiority here and record a second success at this level, though there may be improvement forthcoming from the recently-gelded Kyllang Rock whilst the experienced Sir Robert Cheval is running well enough to make his presence felt.
  1. Waady
  2. Kyllang Rock
  3. Mirza
