Betting

Forecast

Laafy (7/2), Fishable (9/2), Cepheus (9/2), Johnny Drama (9/2), Dash Of Spice (8/1), Iconic Choice (17/2), Tulip Fields (9/1), Everything For You (14/1), Eddystone Rock (22/1), Battle Of Marathon (66/1)

Verdict

LAAFY wasn't at his best in listed company last time, but he looked better than ever when scoring at Ascot previously and is appealing back in a handicap off a feasible mark. Next on the list is Iconic Choice, who put in good late work when fourth at York a fortnight ago and this step up in trip looks a good move. Fishable and Johnny Drama also enter calculations.

  1. LAAFY (USA)
  2. ICONIC CHOICE
  3. FISHABLE
