Betting

Forecast

Black Anthem (6/5), Skinflint (9/4), Auld Sod (7/1), Golander (8/1), Barton Rose (9/1), The Major (12/1), Thats Yer Man (50/1), Monty Massini (66/1)

Verdict

Like many who arrive at the Dr Richard Newland yard a step forward is never far away and BLACK ANTHEM has already made his with a win and a second to his name over hurdles he now reverts to fences seemingly on the up. Skinflint is likely to appreciate the drop in trip and a return to fences after a 3m plus trip here last time proved beyond him with Auld Sod capable of getting involved if he can reproduce his form away from Stratford. Barton Rose will be interesting if there is any money for her on her stable debut while Golander showed signs that he could win over fences last time.
  1. Black Anthem
  2. Golander
  3. Skinflint
