Betting

Forecast

Apple's Shakira (1/1), Gumball (5/4), Speedo Boy (14/1), Apparition (25/1), Eragon De Chanay (28/1), Eh Georges (40/1)

Verdict
Gumball has been most impressive on his two outings since joining his current trainer and sets the standard. However, he may have his work cut out to give 7lb to APPLE'S SHAKIRA, who won on her only start in France, is highly regarded by her trainer and is 20-1 for the Triumph Hurdle despite never having run in England. Eh Georges brings more French form into the race and is respected, but the others look to be up against it despite bringing fair credentials to the table.
  1. Apple's Shakira
  2. Gumball
  3. Eh Georges
