Betting

Forecast

St Just (4/7), Lyricist Voice (7/1), Xian Express (7/1), Copperlight (10/1), Blake's Vision (10/1), Internationaltiger (16/1)

Verdict
Not the type of race which makes a great deal of appeal for betting purposes, but the most likely winner is surely the Lingfield New Year's Eve scorer ST JUST. He beat a subsequent winner (Island Hideaway) when making his handicap debut on that occasion, therefore a 6lb rise in the weights isn't considered to be excessive. Both Blake's Vision and Xian Express have also been running reasonably well (the latter seeks a hat-trick), yet the suspicion is that their overall form lines aren't particularly strong. Of the others, Richard Fahey's Internationaltiger is noteworthy on AW/handicap debut post wind surgery.
  1. St Just
  2. Internationaltiger
  3. Blake's Vision
