Forecasts

Carlos Du Fruitier (3/1), Keep In Line (4/1), Value At Risk (5/1), Fixed Rate (6/1), Clondaw Kaempfer (6/1), Cake de L'Isle (16/1), High Secret (16/1), Querry Horse (16/1), Ahead of The Curve (25/1), Forth Bridge (40/1)

Verdict

KEEP IN LINE ran well to finish third in a race that is work out well last time out and Alan King's charge can register his third victory over hurdles in this competitive handicap hurdle. The selection has the ground to suit today and can get the better of Carlos Du Fruitier who is making his handicap debut today while Clondaw Kaempfer returned to form last time out and can claim third today.
  1. Keep In Line
  2. Carlos Du Fruitier
  3. Clondaw Kaempfer
