Betting

Forecast

Dandy Dan (7/2), Kilfilum Cross (4/1), Molly The Dolly (5/1), Onefortheroadtom (7/1), Ibis Du Rheu (7/1), Azzerti (8/1), Drinks Interval (8/1), Claud And Goldie (14/1), Trongate (18/1)

Verdict
KILFILUM CROSS ran a cracker to be second in the Kim Muir at the Cheltenham Festival and after just two starts this term should still have something to offer. Top weights Dandy Dan and Ibis Du Rheu have claims, and the longer trip may bring about better luck for Azzerti. Drinks Interval drops down in class after struggling in a Grade 1 last time, and Claud And Goldie is in with a squeak after a series of good runs this term.
  1. Kilfilum Cross
  2. Dandy Dan
  3. Claud And Goldie
