Betting

Forecast

Neville's Cross (10/3), Tobefair (11/2), I'd Better Go Now (7/1), Flinck (8/1), Champagne Court (8/1), Honest Vic (12/1), Ballon Onabudget (12/1), Story Of Friends (14/1), Sirobbie (16/1), Kansas City Chief (18/1), Lock's Corner (20/1), Goodbye Dancer (20/1), Minella Warrior (22/1), Vaniteux (33/1), The Devils Drop (50/1), Speredek (50/1), Cotswold Way (66/1), Bailarico (150/1)

Verdict

A really good handicap. NEVILLE'S CROSS had lots in hand at Hereford and may be capable of defying a double-figure rise with further progress very much on the cards. I'd Better Go Now is another who almost certainly has more to offer and rates a big threat, while Flinck leaves the impression 3m will suit and is also respected. Honest Vic and course-specialist Tobefair also make the shortlist.

  1. NEVILLE'S CROSS (IRE)
  2. I'D BETTER GO NOW (IRE)
  3. FLINCK (IRE)
