Forecasts

Bothwell Bridge (7/4), Danny Kirwan (5/2), Champagne Court (16/5), Not Available (4/1), Pilbara (16/1)

Verdict

BOTHWELL BRIDGE made a bright start to his chasing career when winning at Sandown and, having had excuses for his last 2 starts, can get back on track with better conditions to suit following his Newbury disappointment. He remains with potential over fences and can prove too strong for Danny Kirwan, who should also appreciate the return to quicker ground after Sandown last time. Champagne Court can run his race again and completes the shortlist.

  1. BOTHWELL BRIDGE (IRE)
  2. DANNY KIRWAN (IRE)
  3. CHAMPAGNE COURT (IRE)
