Verdict

A race full of interest and we get a rematch of last year with Cogry once again taking on Singlefarmpayment with the latter much better off a the weights this time although with his attitude pounds probably make little difference and it will come down to what mood he’s in. His old rival – Cogry – can be relied on to run his usual sound and game race but it may well be the sixth from last year ROCK THE KASBAH who can turn the tables this time around having been given a nice preparation for this in the Badger Ales Trophy at Wincanton, he’s sure to come on from that run. The claims of West Approach can’t be taken lightly but he’s another who has to defy his quirks to land this prize.
  1. Rock The Kasbah
  2. Cogry
  3. Singlefarmpayment
