Betting

Forecast

Warendorf (15/8), Dunly (5/2), Skipping On (4/1), Uno Valoroso (8/1), Article Fifty (9/1), Ringaringarosie (10/1)

Verdict
By process of elimination, DUNLY probably has the strongest claims here despite disappointing at a short price last time out. Article Fifty ran okay here last time despite jumping right and he might be one for the places while the well-handicapped Skipping On is another to consider after an improved effort last time.
  1. Dunly
  2. Skipping On
  3. Article Fifty
