Betting

Forecast

Ghostwatch (2/1), Mekong (11/4), Austrian School (11/2), Enbihaar (13/2), Sevenna Star (13/2), Thimbleweed (14/1), Outbox (14/1), India (28/1)

Verdict

MEKONG was beaten by Ghostwatch when the pair clashed at York but having fairly bolted up ay Haydock latest he may have improved again and is taken to turn the tables here. Sir Michael Stoute famously brings his horses along slowly and this three-year-old looks a classic case. Ghostwatch himself wasn't disgraced in his subsequent run when second in another valuable handicap over 1m4f here. Sevenna Star faces a tough task under his Group Three penalty but he has always looked likely to appreciate this sort of test so should still go well.
  1. Mekong
  2. Ghostwatch
  3. Sevenna Star
