Betting

Forecast

Diligent (2/1), Primogeniture (11/4), Ballina Lady (11/2), Mountain Of Angels (7/1), Lord De La Mine (7/1), Mr Sawyer (10/1), American Craftsman (33/1), Eddies Pearl (33/1), Killabraher Cross (50/1)

Verdict

Finding a solid citizen in this handicap chase is hard work and the race lacks depth with most of these looking to have plenty to find. Diligent was sent off as the market leader here last time and once again failed to get the job done but that form is better than most have shown and he won’t get many easier chances to open his GB account. MOUNTAIN OF ANGELS is preferred though given longer to recover from her last outing having shown winning form at Southwell where she jumped well, the blinkers (first-time) may provide that extra spark. Primogeniture is far from a frequent winner but may well take advantage of his slide down the weights soon.
  1. Mountain Of Angels
  2. Diligent
  3. Primogeniture
