Betting

Forecast

Midnight River (2/1), Ask For Glory (2/1), Global Fame (4/1), Topofthecotswolds (5/1), Finisk River (8/1), Does He Know (9/1), Domaine De L'Isle (25/1)

Verdict

An interesting race and MIDNIGHT RIVER may be the way to go having beaten a subsequent winner a shade cosily in a reasonable time at Uttoxeter earlier this month. He promises to be well suited by this longer trip. Ask For Glory routed a thin field at Wincanton when last seen and is a leading contender now upped in grade, though Topofthecotswolds shouldn't be taken lightly either.

  1. MIDNIGHT RIVER
  2. ASK FOR GLORY (IRE)
  3. TOPOFTHECOTSWOLDS (IRE)
