Betting

Forecast

Kingsplace (6/4), Port Of Mars (2/1), Some Detail (2/1), Mr Woolley (40/1), Enormouse (100/1)

Verdict

Port Of Mars showed plenty to work with second behind a stablemate at Leicester last month, and was a bit unlucky in the run. There should be more to come under the champion jockey but if KINGPLACE is able to reproduce the best of last season's efforts on this first start for 287 days then he's entitled to be taking this prize. His trainer is in good form and he's just about favoured. Some Detail can lead home the remainder.
  1. Kingsplace
  2. Port Of Mars
  3. Some Detail
