Betting

Forecast

Nietzsche (4/1), Daawy (9/2), Stonific (11/2), Ascot Day (11/2), Donnachies Girl (7/1), Dragons Voice (9/1), Akamanto (10/1), Flood Defence (12/1), Dance King (12/1), Zabeel Star (12/1), Hillgrove Angel (16/1), Royal Cosmic (40/1)

Verdict

The versatile NIETZSCHE shaped well on his Flat return after 10 months off when fourth at York and is potentially on a good mark in this sphere. Dance King and Ascot Day both shaped better than the bare result at Catterick and Bath respectively and they head the dangers.

  1. NIETZSCHE
  2. DANCE KING
  3. ASCOT DAY (FR)
