Betting

Forecast

Derrynane (3/1), Bering Upsun (5/1), Hey Bob (5/1), Snowed In (11/2), Notebook (6/1), Aza Run (8/1), Quill Art (12/1), Grecian King (14/1), Rockliffe (25/1), Atlas Peak (33/1)

Verdict
With all due respect to connections, this race lacks much in the way of quality. Notebook is attractively weighted, and a dual C&D winner, but you'd be playing Russian Roulette backing him pre-race given his regular antics at the start. If jumping off on terms, he's likely to trade shorter in-running, but think of that as an insurance policy if he's the play. Quill Art should be capable of winning races off his current mark, but he might just need another run before attracting more interest, whilst Southwell winner Hey Bob make no appeal in the consistency stakes whatsoever. In a contest where buttons are far better wagered than pounds BERING UPSUN is a speculative choice, with his latest (disappointing) effort at Newcastle looking more respectable with the added benefit of time.
  1. Bering Upsun
  2. Derrynane
  3. Notebook
