Betting

Forecast

Donald Dux (9/2), Miss Mash (9/2), Waitonit (11/2), Oxford Blu (7/1), Farmer Boy (8/1), Hear The Chimes (9/1), Rockliffe (10/1), Diamond Rose (11/1), Invicta Lake (14/1), Holy Hymn (20/1), Lisronagh Stone (20/1), Versifier (33/1), Molly Whuppie (50/1), Strategic (66/1)

Verdict
This looks quite open. Waitonit would be the pick if the yard were in better form, as he is the one with plenty of room for improvement, but they are a bit quiet at the moment and preference is for HOLY HYMNm who only weakened out of it late at Doncaster last time and now tried in blinkers, might be able to finish his race off a bit better. He's open to plenty of improvement as well and the more the ground dries, the better. Money for Lisronagh Stone would make him of more interest, and the likes of Donald Dux and MIss Mash hold place chances.
  1. Holy Hymn
  2. Waitonit
  3. Miss Mash
