3 pts win DEFINITLY RED 5/1 ( at least 12 firms)
Rowland Meyrick

On weights and measures this one should not be reversing the course and distance form with Blaklion from February but in different circumstances today, with the Twiston-Davies horse arriving here after hard race in the Hennessey, the Definitly Red may be the one to beat.Both have improved since that day with Blaklion going on to take the Sun Alliance while Definitly Red's career is on a marked upward curve. After a winning reappearance over hurdles,  he was shorter than he was entitled to be in the Rehearsal last time but still ran a career best race to finish third with the promise of plenty more to come. Hard to see him not being involved here.

Won + 15 pts
