Betting

Forecast

The Detainee (6/4), Compatriot (11/4), Marettimo (5/1), Admiral's Sunset (5/1), Let's Sway (14/1), Out For Justice (40/1), Bubbles Arcade (66/1)

Verdict
The hood may help Let's Sway settle better and she is clearly better for hurdling. Admiral's Sunset was the best of these on the flat and is an interesting recruit to hurdling for her new yard. Any money for her could be significant. Compatriot has improved since the switch to Olly Murphys yard and is likely to make his presence felt on hurdling debut but preference is for THE DETAINEE. Both jumping efforts so far have been full of promise and he can record a first win over timber.
  1. The Detainee
  2. Compatriot
  3. Admiral's Sunset
