Betting

Forecast

That's A Given (1/1), Gortroe Joe (2/1), Court Royale (4/1), Panic And Run (25/1), Kreb's Cycle (33/1), Sid Hoodie (50/1), Banish (66/1)

Verdict
Gortroe Joe has the experience but he has disappointed in the past and this may not be his optimum trip. He lacks a bit of pace so will need to be ridden from the front. That may make him a sitting duck for THAT'S FOR ME who looked useful when quickening away from his rivals on his bumper debut. The competitive bumper at the Punchestown Festival was a step too far, but he only needs to run to a mark of around 120 to be good enough for this and his stable had three winners at Exeter on Tuesday.
  1. That's A Given
  2. Gortroe Joe
  3. Court Royale
