Betting

Forecast

Aux Ptits Soins (5/1), De Name Evades Me (11/2), Shalakar (13/2), Jersey Bean (7/1), Vive Le Roi (8/1), Juge Et Parti (11/1), The Eaglehaslanded (12/1), Lord Du Mesnil (14/1), Chameron (16/1), Forecast (20/1), Nautical Nitwit (20/1), Wotzizname (20/1), Karezak (22/1), Bobo Mac (25/1)

Verdict
CHAMERON may appreciate a return to this discipline after some disappointments over fences of late, but he was running well before unseating last time and he would appear to be on a nice mark. Vive Le Roi has to be considered a major threat given his run of form while similar can be said for Jersey Bean who gets Richard Johnson for company in the saddle.
  1. Chameron
  2. Vive Le Roi
  3. Jersey Bean
