Betting

Forecast

Lakemilan (11/4), Ballyegan Hero (9/2), Articulum (5/1), Game Of War (8/1), Jack Dillinger (9/1), Thecraicisninety (10/1), Seskin Flyer (12/1), Last Goodbye (12/1), Reach Up (20/1), Doctor Phoenix (20/1), Three Wise Men (33/1)

Verdict
Plenty with chances in the race of the day. All eyes will be on Arkle third Articulum who returns to a trip better suited to his talents. He may be vulnerable to some better handicapped types and slight preference is given to THECRAICISNINETY who only just failed last time out at Sligo and looks well weighted here. He is closely matched with Reach Up who also finished as a runner-up last time. Watch out for any overweight put up by his jockey as that could be vital in this contest. Game Of War does not race too often but when he does he deserves every respect.
  1. Thecraicisninety
  2. Reach Up
  3. Articulum
