Betting

Forecast

Does He Know (11/8), Grand Mogul (10/3), Polish (11/2), The Grand Visir (15/2), Wild Romance (10/1), Ballymillsy (16/1), Petrastar (25/1)

Verdict

DOES HE KNOW put up a useful performance to double his hurdle tally over C&D 3 weeks ago, and sets a clear standard on that form, so he should prove hard to beat. If there is one lurking it may be Ballymillsy, who could prove a different proposition second time up over hurdles after shaping better than the distance beaten suggests at Lingfield.
