Betting

Forecast

Druid's Folly (11/4), Ballyantics (7/2), Celma Des Bois (9/2), Mab Dab (7/1), Dunn's River (8/1), Sisania (9/1), Generous Helpings (12/1), Cocker (14/1), Walk Of Gleams (16/1), Keep To The Beat (20/1), Elusive Cowboy (66/1)

Verdict
The likes of Sisania and Dunn's River both need a market check as there are legitiamte reasons why a better effort may be forthcoming today, but as it stands CELMA DES BOIS makes most appeal. He caught the eye at Huntingdon last time and looks a likely improver today. Ballyantics comes from a yard going well and could be capable of a bit more.
  1. Celma Des Bois
  2. Dunn's River
  3. Ballyantics
