Forecast

Gentile Bellini (15/8), Xcite (11/2), Mother Vincent (13/2), Ultra Pride (7/1), Poseidon (8/1), Dundory (10/1), L'Empathie (10/1), Future Gold (11/1), Stormy Tale (12/1), The Mouse Doctor (12/1), Ideal Pal (20/1), Gee Rex (20/1), Allegio (20/1), Magnetic North (25/1), Tandem (50/1), Ontheiflist (50/1), Well Suited (66/1)

Verdict
GENTILE BELLINI is making his handicap debut on the back of his impressive success over this distance at Cork where he made all in a big runner field. The colt is open to improvement given he has only appeared three times so he could be ahead of the handicapper here. Mother Vincent is bidding for her third straight success and if she does fail, she is still likely to be close by, while Xcite can fill the placings off this latest mark as she bids for the second win of her career.
  1. Gentile Bellini
  2. Mother Vincent
  3. Xcite
