Betting

Forecast

Grand Roi (7/4), Belle De Manech (9/2), Genola (8/1), Ocean Wind (9/1), Dreaming Of Glory (14/1), Audacity (16/1), Fair Star (16/1), Quick Draw (16/1), Gavina (16/1), Harrowby (20/1), Shinobi (22/1), Dont Go Gentle (25/1), Be The Best (40/1), Getalead (50/1), Whataboutwalt (66/1), Scarlett O'halo (66/1)

Verdict
It's hard to look past the claims of GRAND ROI following his devastating success at Wincanton on debut where he had several of these in behind. The French raiders Genola and Gavina are both interesting but the main danger could be Belle De Manech who won in good style on debut. Any market support for the newcomer Harrowby is probably worth noting.
  1. Grand Roi
  2. Belle De Manech
  3. Genola
