Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

BLACKBOW has already displayed plenty of talent under Rules and, as an ex-pointer, is very much the type to come into his own now chasing, so he's fancied to overhaul Entoucas, who shaped encouragingly on his first go in this sphere. Defi Bleu is another interesting contender despite having a lengthy absence to overcome.

Betting Forecast

11/4 Entoucas (Fr), 9/2 Blackbow (Ire), 5/1 Alfa Mix, 11/1 Defi Bleu (Fr), 11/1 Top Moon (Fr), 12/1 Raya Time (Fr), 25/1 Calthor (Ire), 80/1 Shopping Around (Ire), 40/1 Filon D'oudairies (Fr), 300/1 Stansfield (Ire), 150/1 De Mazzaro (Ire), 100/1 Optical Confusion (Ire), 200/1 Soi Cowboy, 300/1 Haggard Lad (Ire)
