Betting

Forecast

Split Down South (7/4), Private Matter (7/2), Coolagh Magic (11/2), Smokey Lane (6/1), Kupa River (13/2), Liamba (11/1)

Verdict
Any indication of market support for the attractively weighted Coolagh Magic would offer encouragement in a race where plenty have their respective flaws, with Liamba (out of form), Kupa River (can race keenly) and Private Matter (sits on a stiff handicap mark) being the most obvious examples. However, the safest option is probably to stick with the penalised Chelmsford scorer SPLIT DOWN SOUTH who picked up nicely from a difficult track position to score by a neck at the Essex venue just six days ago.
  1. Split Down South
  2. Coolagh Magic
  3. Kupa River
