Betting

Forecast

Festive Love (5/4), Lake Lucerne (3/1), Scherzo (4/1), Margueritedevalois (7/1), My Girl Maggie (16/1), Ruby Shield (33/1), Maximize (50/1)

Verdict
A maiden that looks to have runners with some scope and it won’t be surprise if it produces future winners. Festive Love sets a good standard having taken the runner-up slot on her debut but it’s SCHERZO with a very similar profile who just shades the argument having impressed on her Newcastle debut already looking as though this 1m2f trip was needed. It won’t be a surprise to see her stablemate Ruby Shield run well on her AW debut with the Gosden pair Lake Lucerne and Margueritedevalois adding some strength in depth, the betting may prove useful in splitting that pair and ascertaining the expectations of newcomer My Girl Maggie.
  1. Scherzo
  2. Festive Love
  3. Ruby Shield
