Betting

Forecast

Green Zone (5/2), Sicilian Bay (7/2), Eddiemaurice (4/1), Choice Of Destiny (13/2), Si Senor (6/1), Solid Justice (8/1), Buy Out Boy (9/1), Street Boss (10/1), Miss Moppet (14/1), Edward Elgar (16/1), Lady Liz (16/1), Slingsby (20/1)

Verdict

The in-form Eddiemaurice beat Street Boss by five lengths at Beverley on Friday but the top weight may struggle to get the better of GREEN ZONE, who is 10lb better off for a length-and-three-quarter defeat by Richard Guest's charge at Thirsk earlier. Nigel Tinkler's gelding can enjoy a deserved change of luck today. Si Senor has his first run on Turf while Solid Justice has been done no favours by the handicapper but Miss Moppet might be one to consider after the obligatory three runs in maidens and Slingsby's second at Leicester was easily his best run so far. Choice Of Destiny won on her Turf debut at Yarmouth but then finished tailed off at Newbury.
