Betting

Forecast

Robert Fitzroy (11/4), West End Charmer (10/3), Two Blondes (7/2), Ballet Red (6/1), Jacko (7/1), The Olympian (10/1), Alcatraz Island (20/1), Summa Force (28/1)

Verdict
Ballet Red surprised everyone when almost winning on debut at 50/1 at Kempton and Harry Dunlop's filly is likely to go off favourite here. A chance is taken however on Mark Johnston's WEST END CHARMER. This colt by Nathaniel was perhaps a little too free on debut at Goodwood but Johnston usually targets his best two-year-olds at that meeting so it is suspected that this one shows plenty at home. Robert Fitzroy is another who has a good bit to find but Michael Bell's two-year-old suggested he would benefit greatly for that experience.
  1. West End Charmer
