Betting

Forecast

Spanish Mission (6/4), Revolver (3/1), Eagles By Day (9/2), The Grand Visir (10/1), Red Verdon (11/1), Selino (12/1), Island Brave (40/1)

Verdict

Far from the strongest of renewals so it could well be within the reach of REVOLVER, who is the most progressive horse of 2020 with 6 handicap wins, and Sir Mark Prescott won this in 2001 with a 3-y-o who had a similar profile. Spanish Mission made a positive start for this yard when easily beating Selino at Chester and rates the main threat, while the penalised Red Verdon has a good record here.

  1. REVOLVER (IRE)
  2. SPANISH MISSION (USA)
  3. RED VERDON (USA)
