Betting

Forecast

Umndeni (7/2), Cloudy Glen (5/1), Ballyandy (11/2), Darling Maltaix (15/2), Sussex Ranger (15/2), Air Horse One (10/1), Master Blueyes (10/1), Brio Conti (14/1), Honest Vic (14/1), Malaya (14/1), Tight Call (14/1)

Verdict
AIR HORSE ONE ran better last time out and in this very tricky handicap he now appeals as being off a very competitive mark at a track he clearly performs well at. Ballyandy is always of more interest over hurdles and the decision to run in this rather than the Betfair is interesting. Cloudy Glen is much higher in the weights now but has been vastly improved the last twice.
  1. Air Horse One
  2. Ballyandy
  3. Cloudy Glen
