Betting

Forecast

King Athelstan (11/4), Alvaro (6/1), Harbour Quay (13/2), Its Nice Tobe Nice (7/1), Mistress Nellie (8/1), Famous Dynasty (8/1), Mobham (17/2), Enmeshing (10/1), Narjes (20/1), Mirabai (20/1), Global Wonder (33/1), Millie May (40/1), Turnbury (66/1)

Verdict
King Athelstan holds a few of these and is entitled to be thereabouts at least. However, it might be worth taking a chance that he might set things up for a late challenge from the unexposed ALVARO, who has very little to find in this company and he can make use of the weight he receives from the top one on the racecard. Famous Dynasty and Mistress Nellie are closely matched and are both capable of making this a good scrap for the minor honours. Mobham and Enmeshing are a couple of others worth noting for each-way interest.
  1. Alvaro
  2. King Athelstan
  3. Famous Dynasty
