Betting

Forecast

Queen's Order (2/7), Moon Power (3/1), Ventura Lightning (7/2), Dazzling Des (5/1), Arriba Arriba (10/1), Serious Jockin (12/1), Maurice Dancer (20/1), Gypsy Traveller (33/1), Lady Nectar (33/1), Last Date (66/1)

Verdict

Much may depend upon the participation of Ventura Lightning, who was scheduled to run in the Hornblower Stakes at Ripon on Saturday afternoon. The Fahey inmate impressed when making a winning debut at Thirsk and would have strong claims if turning up here. However, if doing so he will have to give 11lb to QUEEN'S ORDER, who made a debut full of promise over course and distance and could well go one better here. Dazzling Des came home last of eight on his latest start and needs to put that run behind him but Arriba Arriba showed significant improvement second time up. Moon Power looks best of the newcomers with De Sousa booked.
