Betting

Forecast

One To Go (4/1), Garrison Commander (4/1), Mecca's Gift (4/1), Li Kui (5/1), Jimmy Greenhough (15/2), My Boy Lewis (9/1), Alfa Dawn (16/1), Starlight Red (16/1), The Rutland Rebel (25/1), Gremoboy (33/1)

Verdict
Mecca's Gift will go well under a penalty if her 7-length romp at Hamilton is taken at face value, but her overall form throws a little doubt on the vailidity of her easy win, and preference is for the gradually progressive ONE TO GO, who was a good second in first-time blinkers at Beverley last time, and ought to continue in form, with the possibility of more to come. Jimmy Greenhough put up a career-best effort last time, and will get involved if staying the longer trip under similar tactics.
  1. One To Go
  2. Mecca's Gift
  3. Jimmy Greenhough
