Betting

Forecast

Go Whatever (2/1), Quloob (2/1), The Grey Scholar (9/2), Lamanver Bel Ami (7/1), Fort Denison (12/1), Certainly Red (25/1), Laurie Come On (25/1), Downe Milking Lane (250/1), Calypso Jack (300/1)

Verdict
An interesting opener in the only non-handicap on the card with the third of QULOOB on his debut at Ascot versus two previous hurdles winners setting the standard. There should be more to come from the three-time Flat winner with his trainer – Gary Moore – having a good record here. The Grey Scholar and Go Whatever have both scored in point-to-points with the former’s Chaddesley Corbett demolition being the most impressive piece of form in that sphere. Lamanver Bel Ami has a future over hurdles if he can settle better while Fort Denison and Certainly Red are two to keep an eye on for handicaps once they have a mark.
  1. Quloob
  2. The Grey Scholar
  3. Go Whatever
