Forecast

Billingsley (5/2), Muratello (7/2), Zizaneur (11/2), Le Coeur Net (8/1), Sir Egbert (9/1), Go Long (11/1), Clan Legend (14/1), Ubaltique (16/1), Ard Chros (16/1), Fiddlers Bow (33/1)

Verdict
A race which may be one for improvers, BILLINGSLEY fits that bill and avenged memories of his unseat two starts ago with a gutsy success at Hereford in testing ground last time. The handicapper hasn't been too harsh which keeps him on a workable mark still. The same can be applied to Le Coeur Net, who has failed to disappoint all season but now faces his stiffest task to date, while the likes of the mercurial Zizaneur and Ard Chros are high enough in the weights but were promising on their latest starts.
  1. Billingsley
  2. Le Coeur Net
  3. Ard Chros
