Betting

Forecast

Go Steady (9/4), Subcontinent (4/1), Delight Of Dubai (6/1), Durouyn (13/2), Rosmuc Relay (8/1), Iron Horse (8/1), Driftwood Haze (9/1)

Verdict
GO STEADY has shown good form in his three starts over fences to date and with further improvement likely he can defy a 5lb rise in the weights to take this novices' handicap event. The selection has forecast underfoot conditions to suit and he can get the better of Delight Of Dubai who is making her debut over fences while third place can go to Subcontinent, another having his first start over the larger obstacles.
  1. Go Steady
  2. Delight Of Dubai
  3. Subcontinent
