Betting

Forecast

Becky The Thatcher (5/2), Suegioo (5/2), Champarisi (7/2), Handiwork (11/2), Forewarning (12/1), Norab (20/1), Arty Campbell (20/1)

Verdict

The lovable Suegioo should make a bold bid to land this for the second year running but in BECKY THE THATCHER he faces a rival in good form who loves it here, and in receipt of 18lb is fancied to come out on top. Handiwork is respected with a top jockey on board and despite top weight isn't out of it, and Arty Campbell is nicely handicapped if able to roll back the years and capture a bit of old form. Champarisi has to priove his stamina over this new trip.
  1. Becky The Thatcher
  2. Suegioo
