Betting

Forecast

Lady Valdean (9/2), Sky Marshal (6/1), Kerrera (7/1), Rubensian (8/1), Orin Swift (9/1), Ravenous (10/1), Rainbow Rising (12/1), Famous Dynasty (12/1), Sufi (12/1), My Brother Mike (14/1), Epitaph (20/1), Methag (25/1), Omotesando (33/1)

Verdict
Not a particularly appealing contest by Newbury standards and a race which would be equally well placed on the AW at Wolverhampton or Lingfield. However, we seek the winner with improvement likely from the wind operated upon Rubensian now upped to a more suitable trip, and the reappearing four-year-old Orin Swift who is far from fully exposed for the Jonathan Portman stable, but in a wide open event, we'll side with the stout stayer KERRERA. She was a winner over this trip at Newmarket in August and should be competitive off just a 5lb higher mark at a track which should suit following a solid prep-run at Wolverhampton latest.
  1. Kerrera
  2. Rubensian
  3. Orin Swift
