Forecasts

The Very Man (1/1), Dionysis (7/2), Super Follo (9/2), Neptune (7/1), Bigbadandbeautiful (12/1), I'mstillyourbaby (12/1), Soi Cowboy (25/1), Ballyshannon Rose (50/1), Mama Tried (50/1)

Verdict

Not much to rely on in terms of discernible form in the finale. Blindly, it might be easiest to go with Dionysis, a half-brother to Bacardys, given he represents the trainer/jockey combo that farms these races. He'll be well-found in the betting as will The Very Man having fetched £210,000 out of the Gigginstown coffers. The form of the latter's point-to-point win remains untested. Super Follo has a big absence to defy, though isn't dismissed, but the vote is given to BIGBADANDBEAUTIFUL. The filly has plenty going for on paper and has an in-form Jamie Codd on her side.
  1. Bigbadandbeautiful
  2. Dionysis
  3. The Very Man
