Forecast

King Of Realms (3/1), Belami Des Pictons (10/3), Two Taffs (9/2), Clondaw Castle (11/2), Katpoli (6/1), Gala Ball (12/1), Northern Beau (16/1), Generous Day (16/1)

Verdict
A really competitive contest this with preference for two handicappers who rather disappointed last time out after running big races in defeat the time before. Preference is for CLONDAW CASTLE who ran a blinder behind now 156-rated Diego Du Charmil first time out. Although he must prove he stays beyond 2m he did win a 3m point earlier in his career. Belami Des Pictons caught many an eye when fourth in the BetVictor Gold Cup after a long layoff hence him being made favourite next time out. A return to 2m4f here may make the difference. Progressive Gala Ball and potentially well-handicapped Two Taffs are also realistic contenders.
  1. Clondaw Castle
  2. Belami Des Pictons
  3. Gala Ball
