Betting

Forecast

Empire Steel (5/2), Frisson Collonges (7/2), Beat Box (11/2), Animore (7/1), Do Not Disturb (15/2), Lemon T (10/1), Holy Motivation (14/1), King Of Fashion (18/1), Stop Talking (22/1), Eeyore (22/1), Gipsy Lee Rose (50/1), Savoy Court (80/1)

Verdict

BEAT BOX shaped well when third at Hexham on his recent chasing bow and is taken to put that experience to excellent effect here with victory. Lots of these have their first go chasing and among them Empire Steel, from the in-form Sandy Thomson yard, and Dan Skelton's Frisson Collonges make most appeal in an intriguing novice handicap.
