Betting

Forecast

Krackatoa King (7/2), Delgany Demon (7/2), Highway Storm (9/2), Daklondike (5/1), Zanstra (10/1), Bells Of Ailsworth (14/1), Nortonthorpelegend (14/1), Basford Ben (20/1), Tickenwolf (20/1), Purcell's Bridge (25/1)

Verdict
Point-to-point winner Daklondike can surely do better for his leading connections, but he did not impress on his chasing debut. Basford Ben and Nortonthorpelegend are well handicapped if returning to form, but this may be fought out by BELLS OF AILSWORTH and Krackatoa King, who are feasibly weighted and were in decent form when last seen. The selection may have a little more room for improvement, while Highway Storm, Tickenwolf and Zanstra cannot be ruled out with any confidence.
  1. Bells Of Ailsworth
  2. Krackatoa King
  3. Daklondike
