Forecasts

Arthur's Secret (8/15), Ballotin (7/4), Delegate (3/1), Sam Cavallaro (20/1), Numbercruncher (20/1), Hidden Cargo (20/1), Dissertation (66/1), River Purple (100/1)

Verdict

David Maxwell and Philip Hobbs are having a good season and can add to their tally with BALLOTIN who was rated far superior to these in his prime and who will be all the better for two runs after a layoff. He readily took care of his rivals at Leicester and should be seen to better effect at this trip. Arthur's Secret romped home here last month and he has an impressive winning record, albeit at a lower level than the selection. Delegate has something to prove following three disastrous efforts since scoring a year ago but the booking of Will Biddick looks positive.
  1. Ballotin
  2. Arthur's Secret
  3. Delegate
