Betting

Forecast

Colonial Dreams (13/8), Red Mix (9/4), Thistle Do Nicely (5/1), Esprit De Somoza (6/1), Here's Herbie (10/1), Embole (16/1)

Verdict
Having caught the eye in a graded handicap at Ascot last time (second) COLONIAL DREAMS looks to hold sound claims of going one better now for the champion trainer. He's dropping in grade and, with entries in a pair of handicaps at the Cheltenham Festival, needs to take this prize to potentially book himself a trip to the Cotswolds. Handicap debutant Thistle Do Nicely is well worth a look going up in distance while Red Mix is on a good mark following his recent effort at Ludlow. Here's Herbie loves it around here and should outrun his forecast odds.
  1. Colonial Dreams
  2. Thistle Do Nicely
  3. Red Mix
