Betting

Forecast

Rebecca Rocks (5/2), Acclaim The Nation (3/1), Bellevarde (9/2), Majestic Hero (5/1), Leo Minor (8/1), Kinglami (14/1), Babyfact (16/1), Nautical Haven (20/1)

Verdict

This is a wide open sprint handicap with most of the runners having some claims. MAJESTIC HERO is a marginal choice as he goes well first time out and is on a feasible mark. Kinglami will appreciate the return to turf and shouldn't be far away, nor should top weight Leo Minor who has been given a chance by the handicapper. Rebecca Rocks is unexposed and the market may prove a good indicator to her chance, while Acclaim The Nation and Bellevarde aren't ruled out either.
  1. Majestic Hero
  2. Rebecca Rocks
  3. Kinglami
