Betting

Forecast

Major Pusey (7/2), Taexali (13/2), Ebitda (8/1), Thammin (8/1), Casterbridge (10/1), Suwaan (11/1), Sheepscar Lad (12/1), Signore Piccolo (12/1), Tylery Wonder (14/1), Lucky Beggar (16/1), The Armed Man (16/1), Memories Galore (16/1), Oh So Sassy (20/1), African Friend (25/1), Siege Of Boston (25/1), Royal Brave (25/1), Something Lucky (33/1)

Verdict

African Friend could go well at a big price on the back of a break and he may prove to be on a decent mark. Ebitda had a terrific season in 2017 and could continue his progress. Thammin is also feared and is added to the shortlist. That list is headed by SHEEPSCAR LAD. He progressed really nicely last season and the manor of his victories have made it hard for the handicapper to be too hard on him. He can make light of the 2lb rise in the weights and win again.
  1. Sheepscar Lad
  2. African Friend
  3. Thammin
