Betting

Forecast

Charlie D (10/3), Singing The Blues (9/2), Hope Is High (9/2), Victoriano (11/2), Sufi (9/1), Cotton Club (12/1), Gemini (12/1), Rosie Royale (16/1), The Detainee (18/1), Sinndarella (20/1), Filament Of Gold (25/1), Street Jester (40/1), Khismet (50/1), Lady Natasha (66/1)

Verdict
Top weight might not be enough to stop CHARLIE D whilst he's on his A-game and he's taken to expand on what has been a profitable little spell for the gelding. Gemini doesn't have much to find to reverse recent course form with the selection and might well appreciate the drop in trip today. The consistent Singing The Blues has place claims once more, as does Hope Is High, who races from a mark just 2lb above the mark she was on when she finished an admirable third in this race last year. Sufi and Cotton Club are others to monitor in the betting.
  1. Charlie D
  2. Gemini
  3. Singing The Blues
