Betting

Forecast

Torn And Frayed (7/4), Danny Kirwan (9/4), Killer Kane (7/2), Butte Montana (13/2), Malinello (8/1), Ottonian (12/1), Real Stone (50/1), Calypso Storm (500/1)

Verdict

DANNY KIRWAN sets a very high standard on his best form and, with his yard among the winners, he is worth forgiving his disappointing odds-on reverse when last seen out at Exeter 8 months ago. Killer Kane rates a most interesting newcomer though for the Tizzard team so is worth a market check, while the experienced Torn And Frayed should also have a say on his return.

  1. DANNY KIRWAN (IRE)
  2. KILLER KANE (IRE)
  3. TORN AND FRAYED (FR)
