Forecast

Simply The Betts (10/3), Death Duty (8/1), Ben Dundee (10/1), Oldgrangewood (11/1), Blazer (11/1), Springtown Lake (12/1), Robin Des Foret (12/1), Deyrann de Carjac (14/1), Siruh Du Lac (14/1), Clondaw Castle (14/1), Spiritofthegames (16/1), La Bague Au Roi (16/1), Happy Diva (20/1), Vision Des Flos (20/1), Not Another Muddle (20/1), Mister Whitaker (22/1), Livelovelaugh (33/1), Snow Falcon (33/1), Charmant (33/1), Louis' Vac Pouch (50/1), Kauto Riko (50/1), Highway One O One (50/1), Imperial Presence (66/1), Royal Village (80/1)

Verdict

An intriguing and difficult line-up in which Simply The Betts should go close after four solid, improving runs this season and looks open to further improvement. Dropping down from Graded company should see La Bague Au Roi in the mix whilst Spiritofthegames and Mister Whitaker have rock solid form in competitive handicaps at this track. The tentative selection is handicap debutant DEYRANN DE CARJAC, whose early season form has worked out well and has been placed behind some decent animals on his last two runs.
  1. Deyrann de Carjac
  2. Mister Whitaker
  3. Simply The Betts
