Betting

Forecast

Espoir De Guye (5/2), Red Risk (7/2), Earlofthecotswolds (4/1), Count Meribel (13/2), Drumcliff (11/1), King Of Realms (11/1), Flaminger (16/1), Deauville Dancer (18/1), Doitforthevillage (50/1)

Verdict

DEAUVILLE DANCER was seen out only twice last season but he starts off with a new yard on a potentially lenient mark so could be the answer. Espoir de Guye was a big improver last season before having excuses at the Cheltenham Festival and remains one to be positive about, while good claims can also be made for Count Meribel and Red Risk.

  1. DEAUVILLE DANCER (IRE)
  2. ESPOIR DE GUYE (FR)
  3. COUNT MERIBEL
