Betting

Forecast

Spiritofthegames (3/1), Enola Gay (4/1), Kildisart (9/2), Azzerti (5/1), Highway One O One (8/1), Dentley De Mee (9/1), First Drift (14/1), Onefortheroadtom (16/1)

Verdict

KILDISART has taken well to life over fences and showed a good attitude when staying on well at Ascot last time out. He's taken to get the better of Enola Gay who was probably left a bit too much to do at Wincanton last time out. First Drift may do better over this longer trip and could be up to placing at this level.
  1. Kildisart
  2. Enola Gay
  3. First Drift
