Betting

Forecast

Singing The Blues (7/2), Allegiant (4/1), Ashazuri (5/1), Peace Prevails (6/1), Sigrid Nansen (7/1), Carp Kid (8/1), Fannie By Gaslight (8/1), Jawshan (14/1), Amanto (20/1), Ezanak (33/1)

Verdict

A competitive race with a a number of chances. Sigrid Nansen is in great form and shouldn't be far away again while Peace Prevails has really taken to this C&D and is likewise in good heart. Allegiant is down in grade and has raced as though this distance could suit. FANNIE BY GASLIGHT ran well on her reappearance and is taken to be much better for it also down in class. Singing The Blues is so reliable it's hard to see him not being involved.
  1. Fannie By Gaslight
  2. Allegiant
  3. Singing The Blues
