Forecasts

Vaucelet (11/10), Its All Guesswork (9/2), Stand Up And Fight (6/1), Er Dancer (10/1), On The Sod (10/1), Some Man (14/1), Poli Roi (16/1), Dorking Cock (22/1), Nick Lost (25/1), Faith Loving (50/1), Thomas Shelby (80/1)

Verdict

A good hunter. VAUCELET leaves the impression he could have even more to come so is fancied to stretch his unbeaten record in this sphere to 4. Stand Up And Fight is a pretty smart operator at this level at his best and is feared most ahead of the selection's stablemates On The Sod and Some Man.

  1. VAUCELET (FR)
  2. STAND UP AND FIGHT (IRE)
  3. ON THE SOD (IRE)
