Betting

Forecast

George Dryden (5/2), You're Cool (11/4), Just That Lord (3/1), Brother Tiger (7/2), Red Stripes (14/1), Union Rose (20/1)

Verdict
A decent little sprint handicap that is likely to be run at a sound pace with a few of these liking to set or sit near the pace. Brother Tiger brings plenty of C&D form to the party and he looks to be working his way back to something like his best of late while You’re Cool will be a danger if he settles better this time around and reproduces the form of his two wins. GEORGE DRYDEN is still well handicapped though and a strongly run 5f looks to be ideal for him and he could well get off the mark for his new yard here.
  1. George Dryden
  2. Brother Tiger
  3. You're Cool
