Betting

Forecast

Tegerek (4/1), Proschema (5/1), Thyme White (5/1), The Shunter (13/2), Edwardstone (13/2), Ballyandy (8/1), Sir Psycho (9/1), Sebastopol (12/1), Hunters Call (16/1), Strong Glance (16/1), Harambe (16/1), Cormier (18/1), Milkwood (20/1), Pisgah Pike (20/1), Ballinsker (25/1), Thinking (28/1), Countister (40/1), Tudor City (50/1)

Verdict

An ultra-competitive handicap but there's every chance it will go to a stable that has won it before, and EDWARDSTONE looks most interesting making his handicap debut for Alan King, who has won two of the last three renewals. Proschema still has scope to do better over hurdles given his smart Flat form so is feared most, althoughTegerek won well at the last meeting here so commands respect too.

  1. EDWARDSTONE
  2. PROSCHEMA (IRE)
  3. TEGEREK (FR)
