Betting

Forecast

Whitlock (15/8), Grey Spirit (11/4), Ajero (3/1), African Dance (9/1), Mayne (18/1), Mandalayan (18/1), Guildhall (22/1), San Agustin (28/1), Jaunty Viking (66/1), On The Platform (80/1), Clondaw Tonic (100/1), Jovial Spirit (100/1), Jenny Ren (250/1), Champagne Power (300/1)

Verdict

AJERO is a half-brother to Charbel, a very smart chaser for these connections, and having shaped with promise both starts 7 months apart, he rates a good prospect in his own right. Tongue tied for the first time, he is marginally preferred to Grey Spirit, who has a double penalty to contend with, for all a good-value conditional takes off 7 lb. Whitlock needs a close look in the market.

  1. AJERO (IRE)
  2. GREY SPIRIT (IRE)
  3. WHITLOCK
