Betting

Forecast

Seskin Flyer (2/1), Veinard (10/3), Shrewdoperator (9/2), Crazywork De Vassy (11/2), Head Turner (7/1), Nomanbehind (8/1)

Verdict
The Gordon Elliott-trained VEINARD can follow up his facile win at Ayr last month bagging the prize allowed to run off a 2lb lower mark back on home soil. The solid and consistent Seskin Flyer who has hit the frame in each of his six starts over the larger obstacles including two wins over 2m2f and 2m3½f in December can proceed to be a plausible danger along with distance winner Crazywork De Vassy who can claim a minor honour.
  1. Veinard
