Five runners lead the betting in one of the closest fields in this Festival. De Boitron, Notus De La Tour, Shot From The Hip, Toubab, Astracad and Kid Cassidy are all priced at around 8/1.
De Boitron is an experienced runner at this distance, although does not have the win rate to deserve a win bet. A place perhaps. Notus De La Tour is again very experienced, but does not have the form coming into this race to warrant a win bet in our opinion. Shot From The Hip has not been tested in fields of this size, so is perhaps a but of an unknown.
Toubab again is not tested in large fields such as this, but is a consistent runner, and well worth a place, if not a win bet. Astracad is used to running a little further than this distance, and should be respected for that reason. Astracad is also a potential winner here. Kid Cassidy has already won twice in 2012 and has a 56% career win rate.
Tanks for That brings a lot of experience and at 10/1 may be worth an each way bet. French Opera is also experienced and brings a lot of consistency into this race. Worth a place bet perhaps. Oiseau De Nuit is a 10 year old that also may be worth a place at 12/1.
WinDrawWin Tips: Astracad to win. Kid Cassidy and French Opera to place.
