Betting

Forecast

Bobmahley (11/4), Definite Wisdom (4/1), Pakie's Dream (4/1), Out For Justice (9/2), Izzy's Champion (13/2), Imperial Prince (8/1), Son Of Feyan (25/1)

Verdict
DEFINITE WISDOM has lots of scope for improvement over fences and will be a tough customer to deal with if able to stride on from his near miss at Wetherby in December. Imperial Prince, who runs is cheekpieces for the first time, doesn't have much to find to get competitive and merits a betting check at least. Izzy's Champion seemed revitalised by a wind operation when winning last time out but is up in trip and has 6lb more to shoulder, so a chance is taken that Out For Justice
  1. Definite Wisdom
  2. Imperial Prince
  3. Out For Justice
