Betting

Forecast

Jack The Truth (11/8), Devils Roc (9/2), Kath's Lustre (7/1), Cookupastorm (15/2), Edged Out (8/1), Mawde (12/1), Firenze Rosa (16/1), Flowing Clarets (20/1), Staffa (33/1)

Verdict
Not the most appealing contest as a betting medium, with few bringing really solid credentials, so it appears that JACK THE TRUTH has it to lose after getting his head in front at Newmarket. Edged Out is in the veteran stage, but went very close off the same mark at Bath last time, so needs to be taken seriously, while Devils Roc would have decent claims if a poor run at Windsor last time was forgiven.
  1. Jack The Truth
  2. Edged Out
  3. Devils Roc
