Betting

Forecast

Friend Or Foe (11/4), Get Back Get Back (10/3), Andaleep (7/2), Waterproof (9/1), Rose To Fame (10/1), Winds Of Fire (10/1), Foreign Secretary (11/1), Nebuchadnezzar (16/1)

Verdict

Ready preference is for unexposed 5-y-o FRIEND OR FOE, who shaped very well indeed when runner-up back from an 18-month absence at Chepstow and turns out here off the same mark. Andaleep was 2 lb 'wrong' at the weights when just behind Get Back Get Back at Wincanton, and he is taken to reverse the placings with that rival and emerge as the main danger.

  1. FRIEND OR FOE (FR)
  2. ANDALEEP (IRE)
  3. GET BACK GET BACK (IRE)
