Forecasts

Oathkeeper (11/8), Snugsborough Benny (9/4), Ballela Boy (4/1), Round Tower (7/1), Lean And Keen (12/1), Nevada Rose (50/1)

Verdict

Lean and Keen is capable at this level but needs to jump better. Snugborough Benny should be much more at home on this sounder surface and is feared. Oathkeeper has the raw ability to win this. The Shortlist is headed by BALLELA BOY who struggled in a handicap last time but could easily bounce back here on this better surface and notch another win.
  1. Ballela Boy
  2. Snugsborough Benny
  3. Lean And Keen
