Betting

Forecast

No Grey Area's (7/4), Scalor (2/1), Sellarbridge (3/1), Ebadali (14/1), Thousand Tears (16/1), Little Saint (25/1), Willyouwalkwithme (50/1)

Verdict
There was a lot to like about the debut run from NO GREY AREA'S, who kept plugging away to claim second near the finish. A more dogged effort may suffice in this company. Noel Meade has readied one to win a past renewal of this race and his Sellerbridge is also worth bearing in mind as an alternative. The betting will be a useful guide but it would come as no surprise to see Little Saint attract a bit of interest, as he was well backed on debut and there may be expectations held of him to make amends for that effort.
  1. No Grey Area's
  2. Sellarbridge
  3. Little Saint
