Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

DIFFERENT BEAT took her form to a new level when making her second start for Gavin Cromwell a successful one 3 weeks ago and with the prospect of more to come as her stamina is drawn out, she's a very appealing candidate. Galon de Vauzelle and Rocco Storm are a couple of potential threats.

Betting Forecast

17/2 Galon De Vauzelle (Fr), 22/1 Glorious Singer (Ire), 12/1 Stormy Master (Ire), 12/1 Captain Jimmy (Ire), 10/1 Rocco Storm (Ire), 498/1 Only For Pascal (Ire), 28/1 Johnnys Girl (Ire), 40/1 Mister Thriller (Ire), 22/1 King And Queen (Fr), 40/1 Haunting Vocals (Ire)
