Betting

Forecast

Cuba Ruba (6/4), Three Castles (2/1), Myklachi (7/2), Magrevio (4/1), Spirit Of Lund (5/1), Exchequer (FR) (7/1), Sleepdancer (25/1), Gloryella (33/1)

Verdict

Although the form horse is undoubtedly Three Castles and the level of opposition can hardly be described as the most taxing, the Keith Dalgleish-trained runner is worth opposing over a new trip on a sound surface. The likes of Myklachi, Magrevio and CUBA RUBA all have related form lines but a chance is taken on the Tim Easterby-trained three-year-old in a very winnable contest.
  1. Cuba Ruba
  2. Myklachi
  3. Three Castles
