Betting

Forecast

Maker Of Kings (7/2), Emiyn (4/1), Quizical (9/2), Tauran Shaman (9/1), Breaking Story (9/1), Theophile (10/1), Robin Des Sheikh (11/1), Bardo Contiguo (12/1), Trading Point (14/1), Passing Trade (25/1), Twenty Minutes (25/1), Golden Valour (40/1)

Verdict

QUIZICAL can be the answer to this handicap for the second year running. He should have come on for last week's Limerick spin and previously ran a screamer in the Irish Cambridgeshire off this mark. Maker of Kings is progressing nicely and has a fair shout again under Sam Ewing. Robin Des Sheikh is another last-time-out winner to merit plenty of respect.
