Forecasts

Admiral's Secret (3/1), Vengeur De Guye (9/2), New To This Town (5/1), Dicosimo (6/1), Zalvados (6/1), Ubaltique (7/1), Vendor (10/1), Deadly Approach (20/1), Oliver's Gold (25/1)

Verdict

ADMIRAL'S SECRET poached yet another win over fences (now 3-7) when beating the subsequent Musselburgh scorer Ontopoftheworld and today's re-opposing rival Dicosimo at Wincanton on Boxing Day and can probably cope with a subsequent 5lb rise in the weights assuming that the ground doesn't deteriorate any further. Should such a scenario develop overnight (rain/sleet and snow are in the forecast) the pendulum would gradually swing towards Zalvados who has handled himself well in both starts over fences, including when finishing runner-up to Kauto Riko over C&D, with the three-time race winner Ubaltique another to enter the reckoning.
  1. Admiral's Secret
  2. Zalvados
  3. Ubaltique
