Betting

Forecast

Earl Of Bunnacurry (11/4), Argus (3/1), Second Page (4/1), Champarisi (8/1), Epitaph (8/1), Nietzsche (8/1), Star Ascending (12/1), High Command (25/1), Be Perfect (25/1), Sonnetist (25/1), Black Noah (25/1), Restive (33/1), Mouchee (50/1)

Verdict

Not a particularly appealing betting medium with plenty of questions to be answered even by the principals. Second Page has shown some solid form here already and he’s one of the safer contenders in this and is likely to run his race having been only beaten narrowly over 2m last time. Star Ascending has to be respected on his previous C&D form while Nietzsche is an interesting candidate having just his second run back from a wind op – he looks well handicapped on his hurdling form if he takes to Fibresand. ARGUS has to prove that he can back up his last run and win over C&D but still looks well-in on his old form.
  1. Argus
  2. Star Ascending
  3. Nietzsche
