Betting

Forecast

Thai Power (4/5), Immortal Beloved (5/1), Raventree (15/2), Bealach (8/1), Gibraltar (17/2), Camouflaged (18/1)

Verdict
Both Immortal Beloved and Raventree ought to be winning races before too long, with the Charlie Fellowes-trained handicap debutante (closely related to the 1m6f Listed winner Forever Now) arguably the more interesting of that pair. However, the King Power Racing Co Ltd-owned THAI POWER has risen swiftly from humble origins into a proficient staying handicapper. His recent C&D second to Arthurian Fable (Camouflaged sixth) marks him down as having the strongest credentials in this small-field Sandown finale.
