Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

BOLD ENDEAVOUR is tackling more testing ground than previously, but he's looked a useful prospect so far and, with better still to come, he's taken to defy a penalty. Raffle Ticket sets the standard, though Escapeandevade is certainly no back number after readily making all on his recent Rules debut at Ayr.

Betting Forecast

15/8 Raffle Ticket, 3/1 Bold Endeavour, 5/1 Forpaddytheplumber (Ire), 12/1 Robin Des Fox (Ire), 4/1 Escapeandevade (Ire)
