Betting

Forecast

Royal Crown (7/2), Flamboyant Joyaux (4/1), Exelerator Express (11/2), Just Call Me Al (11/2), Our Bubba (8/1), Equus Dancer (17/2), Outcrop (10/1), Tabou Beach Boy (12/1), Flash De Clerval (12/1), Rollerruler (22/1), Gipsy Lee Rose (50/1), The Rory Story (200/1)

Verdict

ROYAL CROWN was a touch disappointing after a positive Rules debut last term but he's a point winner who hails from a yard that should have him well prepared for his chasing debut, so he makes plenty of appeal from what is likely a lenient mark. Just Call Me Al is the main danger after his promising start to chasing, while Excelerator Express is worth keeping in mind.

  1. ROYAL CROWN (FR)
  2. JUST CALL ME AL (IRE)
  3. EXELERATOR EXPRESS (FR)
