Betting

Forecast

Beat That (4/11), Exxaro (9/4), Ruby Russet (33/1), Questionation (33/1), Dry Ol'party (66/1), Mr Pippin (200/1)

Verdict
Nicky Henderson has not given up hope that BEAT THAT can make his mark over fences and aims him low as he bids to get his career back on track following a disappointing 2017-18 season. Exxaro is the obvious one to take advantage should the selection once again fail to adapt to these obstacles.
  1. Beat That
  2. Exxaro
  3. Dry Ol'party
