Betting

Forecast

Conas Taoi (4/1), Day Of Roses (9/2), Kovera (6/1), Timcoda (6/1), Dont Be Robin (7/1), Kilcrea Bridge (8/1), Midnight Magic (10/1), Midnight Mustang (14/1), Cottonwool Baby (20/1), Quarry Wizard (20/1), Vouvray (22/1), Sizing Scorpion (33/1), Monty Massini (100/1)

Verdict

Kilcrea Bridge is back in the right grade and Day Of Roses took advantage of a tumble down the weights at Stratford when beating Midnight Mustang six lengths. Conas Taoi finished ahead of Kilcrea Bridge over a longer trip at Warwick and Musselburgh third Kovera is bidding for a third victory of the campaign having scored at Sedgefield and Newcastle in November. TIMCODA was badly hampered and unseated his rider at the first at Bangor but he’s always looked likely to make a better chaser than hurdler and is much less exposed than his rivals.
