Betting

Forecast

Dollar And A Dream (6/4), Roxyfet (4/1), Sincerely Resdev (13/2), Snougar (13/2), Island Villa (9/1), Christmas In Usa (14/1), Percy B Shelley (20/1), Highwayman (25/1), Goldslinger (28/1), First Of Never (33/1), Oishin (40/1), Dolly's Dot (50/1)

Verdict
ROXYFET loves it around this course and has been in good form without winning of late. The ten-year-old looks reasonably handicapped at present and this looks like a decent chance to get back to winning ways with a claimer taking off a useful amount of weight. The veteran Island Villa will be popular in the betting ring following an all the way victory last time out at Catterick. Whether he can reproduce that remains to be seen and he is not the most trustworthy (his previous win came back in 2014). An outsider worth considering is the unexposed Sincerely Resdev with her bare form possibly better than how it reads.
  1. Roxyfet
  2. Island Villa
  3. Sincerely Resdev
