Forecasts

Zabeel Champion (11/4), Osprey Call (18/5), Howdyalikemenow (5/1), First Impression (15/2), Oakley (17/2), Destrier (10/1), Samba Dancer (10/1), Kannapolis (12/1), Chti Balko (16/1), Castel Gandolfo (18/1), Ingleby Hollow (25/1), Blakeney Point (33/1)

Verdict

ZABEEL CHAMPION, a smart handicapper on the Flat, is worth another chance to prove himself on a good mark in this sphere returning from a break. Chti Balko has dropped to an attractive mark himself and is expected to bounce back from a below-par display at Wetherby when ridden too aggressively. Kannapolis made the most of a golden opportunity at Huntingdon but is still a fresh horse for the time of year and needs respecting, also.

  1. ZABEEL CHAMPION
  2. CHTI BALKO (FR)
  3. KANNAPOLIS (IRE)
