Betting

Forecast

Adamant (11/2), Rake's Progress (7/1), Pivoine (7/1), Lunar Jet (8/1), Buzz (10/1), Road To Dubai (10/1), Zzoro (10/1), Never Surrender (12/1), Hats Off To Larry (12/1), Garbanzo (12/1), Sparte Quercus (12/1), Flight Of Fantasy (12/1), Bid Adieu (16/1), Fast Dancer (25/1), Dragons Voice (25/1), Man Of Harlech (25/1), Carry Me Home (25/1), Stamford Raffles (33/1)

Verdict

BID ADIEU beat the subsequently progressive Clear Skies when taking an AW Dundalk maiden over the winter and, having run a respectable race on debut for this trainer over an inadequate mile recently, there should be plenty more to come from him. Pivoine ended last term in fine fettle for Sir Michael Stoute and should have a say again for new connections while the long-absent Adamant is respected for his previous handler. Zzoro promises to go well after a recent pipe-opener while Rake's Progress has the potential for a big run first time out.
