Betting

Forecast

Christmas In April (11/4), Cloudy Glen (7/2), Doing Fine (5/1), Diable De Sivola (5/1), Weststreet (5/1), Gangster (11/1), Morney Wing (20/1)

Verdict

CHRISTMAS IN APRIL is a likeable staying chaser who might not have finished improving, so he makes plenty of appeal returning from 8 months off in a race where several rivals have questions to answer. Doing Fine's stamina is assured, so he's regarded as a bigger threat than the likes of Cloudy Glen and Diable de Sivola.
