Betting

Forecast

Prince Escalus (1/2), Fantastikas (4/1), Animal (17/2), Witness Protection (12/1), Master Templar (18/1), Hawk Wind (20/1), Welsh Rarebit (50/1), Movethechains (50/1), New Moon (100/1), White Turf (200/1), Mawlood (200/1), Simple Words (250/1)

Verdict

PRINCE ESCALUS quickened clear nicely from a subsequent winner at Huntingdon last month, and looks sure to go on to better things, so he should prove capable of defying a penalty. Animal and Fantastikas are a pair of interesting newcomers to this sphere having shown clear promise in bumpers.

  1. PRINCE ESCALUS (IRE)
  2. ANIMAL (IRE)
  3. FANTASTIKAS (FR)
