Betting

Forecast

Le Coeur Net (2/1), West To The Bridge (9/4), Native Robin (10/3), Saintemilion (6/1), Inch Lala (12/1), Un Beau Roman (16/1)

Verdict
With most of his rivals struggling one way or another, LE COEUR NET appears to have very solid claims and can go one better than his rock solid second at Newbury last time. Although it doesn't look the obvious move, if Saintemilion enjoys the drop back in trip he could be a danger, while the consistent Native Robin is not out of it he responds well to the first-time cheekpieces. West To The Bridge made a dreadful error at the first and was pulled up soon after at Newbury last month but has run respectably over timber since and may bounce back if recovering his poise.
  1. Le Coeur Net
  2. Native Robin
  3. West To The Bridge
