Verdict

The most interesting contender in this race is Aiguille Rouge who is returning from quite a long layoff. However, she was third in the Chatteris Fen at Huntingdon behind a pair of talented rivals when last seen, and off a mark of 128 she could be well-treated. The 10-year-old Man Of Plenty would also be dangerous to dismiss given his recent run of form has resulted in his mark dropping to the same one he scored off in the race last year. However, preference is for PROTEKTORAT who was just beaten over C&D on his seasonal reappearance. This unexposed four-year-old is open to plenty of improvement now handicapping, and is a confident selection for his in-form yard.
  1. Protektorat
  2. Aiguille Rouge
  3. Man Of Plenty
