Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

RELKADAM has travelled as if still in top form on both outings since his Catterick success in December and is worth a chance to get back to winning ways with this drop in trip likely to play to his strengths. His old rival Snougar is a danger, while Lickpenny Larry is lingering on a handy mark if he can put his best foot forward.

Betting Forecast

3/1 Relkadam (Fr), 11/2 Rollerruler, 11/2 Snougar (Ire), 6/1 Lickpenny Larry, 33/1 Las Tunas (Fr), 14/1 Ard Chros (Ire), 25/1 Calix Delafayette (Fr), 11/1 Ettila De Sivola (Fr), 12/1 My Renaissance, 40/1 Black Kettle (Ire)
