Betting

Forecast

Dark Company (2/1), Beijing Billy (4/1), Tell'em Nowt (4/1), Borrowed Angel (11/2), Varenna Storm (7/1), Spirit Of Iffraaj (10/1), Liberated Lad (28/1), Star Of Epsom (33/1), Cents In The City (80/1)

Verdict

DARK COMPANY is hard to side against here given he is well bred and looks sure to improve a fair bit on his promising debut third at Pontefract. Newcomer Borrowed Angel has the potential to have a big say so a positive market move could put a slightly different slant on things. Varenna Storm appeals as the pick of the remainder.

  1. DARK COMPANY (IRE)
  2. BORROWED ANGEL
  3. VARENNA STORM (IRE)
