Betting

Forecast

Almufti (5/4), Habub (4/1), Spirit Warning (5/1), Arcanada (5/1), Goring (8/1), Zhui Feng (16/1)

Verdict
Arcanada will be sharper for the recent run around Wolverhampton and it would be dangerous for the others to cede him too much rope, while Habub should be much more at home over this trip than he was in a 6f Listed race here last time. Almufti bested a few of these when scoring over C&D a fortnight ago despite having to bide his time for the gaps to appear but perhaps the one to take from that race was SPIRIT WARNING. He travelled nicely into contention before seemingly failing to hit top gear on his first outing since September. He's match-fit now and can have strong claims for a yard that are flying.
  1. Spirit Warning
  2. Almufti
  3. Habub
