Back In Focus leads the betting in this large field. Back In Focus is less experienced than most, however has been very impressive of late.
Rival D'estruval is a consistent runner but is certainly making a step up to this distance. Rival D'estruval is a horse with a lot of stamina though and likes the heavy going, and should be a strong contender here. Buddy Bolero does not have a great deal of experience, but has looked impressive in recent months, winning at Leicester, Exeter and Folkestone. Again Buddy Bolero likes the heavy going.
Godsmejudge is one of the few runners that has been tested closer to this distance with a win and a second place at Warwick in January and February. On recent form Godsmejudge may be worth an outside bet for a place. Hawkes Point lacks the experience at this distance to pose any challenge in our opinion.
WinDrawWin Prediction - Back In Focus to Win. Godsmejudge to Place.
