Betting

Forecast

Dark Vader (5/4), Auchterarder (10/3), Hamish Macbeth (7/2), Lexington Rebel (8/1), Dazzling Des (16/1), I'm Digby (25/1), Heer We Go Again (33/1)

Verdict
Aucherarder and DARK VADER look the most solid options and, with the latter now looking more like the finished article, the Irish raider just edges the nomination as the one to be on. The colt has adapted well to the Polytrack surface at Dundalk in his homeland and, given that he was successful from this same mark there last time out, he has a solid chance of following up in this company. Aucherarder will be a threat if he's allowed an easy lead, so merits serious consideration as an alternative, while Hamish Macbeth and I'm Digby are both capable of more and also merit betting checks. A bold run from Dazzling Des would also be dangerous to rule out.
  1. Dark Vader
  2. Auchterarder
