Forecasts

Barbados Blue (11/2), Ecco (6/1), Riggs (7/1), Switch Hitter (7/1), Coeur de Lion (7/1), Whatsupwithyou (15/2), Rathhill (12/1), Runswick Bay (14/1), Top Man (16/1), Distingo (16/1), Who's My Jockey (20/1), Dream Berry (20/1), Monte Cristo (25/1), Push The Tempo (25/1), Jarveys Plate (28/1), Tel'art (33/1), Let's Get At It (80/1)

Verdict

A highly competitive finale. RIGGS had plenty in hand when making his second handicap start a winning one at Uttoxeter last month so could perhaps prove the answer. A market move for the returning Nicky Henderson mare Barbados Blue would make her a probable threat. THe Paul Nicholls pair Ecco and Switch Hitter are also on the shortlist along with Coeur de Lion.

  1. RIGGS (IRE)
  2. BARBADOS BLUE (IRE)
  3. ECCO
