Forecasts

Victory Bond (11/10), Petite Jack (9/2), Utmost (5/1), Red Label (8/1), Intern (10/1), Elbereth (14/1), Mia Tesoro (20/1), Fire Fighting (33/1), Battle Of Marathon (66/1)

Verdict

Quite rightly Victory Bond is likely to start a short price for this race and given how well he won last time out he’s entitled to but it’s a fairly deep field and there might be some value looking further down the market. Elbereth certainly comes into the mix but there’s a nagging doubt that she might just be better on a more galloping course. Red Label for Marco Botti is worthy of a second glance with the trainer having had such a good record in the race and Intern could well win something like this. A chance is taken with the Gosden runner UTMOST he’s only lightly raced and may still have some progress in him all that can be hoped is that he gets a strong pace to run at.
  1. Utmost
  2. Victory Bond
  3. Intern
