Betting

Forecast

Niblawi (15/8), Call Me Sid (2/1), Darcy Ward (11/4), Jersey Bean (11/2), Puppet Warrior (11/2), Aptly Put (15/2), Mighty Vic (33/1), Jimmy (50/1), Ballyhome (50/1), Hecton Bay (100/1), Baihas (100/1), Jolly Jet (250/1), Full Of Mischief (250/1)

Verdict

Only a handful of these can win this on form shown so far. Niblawi has shown plenty of promise in his two starts and could be hard to beat if repeating his debut effort, but CALL ME SID impressed at Ludlow and despite the 100/1 price tag that day, was good value for his win. He can win again under a penalty here. With Puppet Warrior becoming a little disappointing, Aptly Put might be the one to round out the first three.
  1. Call Me Sid
  2. Niblawi
  3. Aptly Put
