Betting

Forecast

Blow By Blow (4/7), Dorans River (5/1), Chateau Conti (8/1), Mon Lino (11/1), Guided By You (12/1), Touch Base (16/1), Returntovendor (25/1), All Good Things (25/1), Connard (25/1)

Verdict
The Gordon Elliott-trained BLOW BY BLOW was a solid Grade 3 winning hurdler last season and eventually coming up against the likes of Next Destination and Jetz. The Seven-year-old can see off the challenge of Dorans River who can develop from his hiccup on chasing debut earlier this month. Chateau Conti and All Good Things can battle for the minor honours.
