Betting

Forecast

Oscars Den (5/2), Top Othe Ra (4/1), She's A Star (13/2), Sanibel Island (7/1), Icario (8/1), Light That (9/1), Yaha Fizz (10/1), He's Our Man (12/1), Apache Jack (25/1), Lilshane (33/1)

Verdict
TOP OTHE RA can complete a double if taking up this engagement given that he is also entered at Cheltenham today. The selection has the ground and trip to suit and can defy a 4lb rise for his latest success by getting the better of Oscars Den, another to have tasted success already this month while Yaha Fizz, a winner three times last winter can claim third on his seasonal debut.
  1. Top Othe Ra
  2. Oscars Den
  3. Yaha Fizz
