Betting

Forecast

Spirit of Valor (6/4), Speak In Colours (4/1), Gorane (5/1), Urban Beat (7/1), Gordon Lord Byron (8/1), Smash Williams (8/1), Now You're Talking (12/1), Son Of Rest (16/1), Mr Scarlet (25/1)

Verdict
SPIRIT OF VALOR could do with beating Gorane to the punch early, as his best form is when leading, but he has the form to dominate these rivals, and looks the one to beat on balance. Smash Williams is consistent at this sort of level, and makes each-way appeal, with veteran Gordon Lord Byron coming into the equation if the ground eases.
  1. Spirit of Valor
  2. Smash Williams
  3. Gordon Lord Byron
