Betting

Forecast

Pym (4/7), Anemoi (11/2), Rock Steady (8/1), Fearsome (16/1), Nadaitak (16/1), Hats Off To Larry (16/1), Envole Toi (25/1)

Verdict
The top pair both carry penalties here but they have the benefit of a recent run and winning hurdling experience which none of their rivals do so they should be able to counter that and therefore look the two to concentrate on. PYM looked to win a stronger race than Fearsome so he gets the nod albeit the latter was the easier winner. Envole Toi was a smart chaser in France and based on that level of form he should be competitive here despite very different ground conditions.
  1. Pym
  2. Fearsome
  3. Envole Toi
