Vertem Eider Handicap Chase (GBB Race) (Class 2 ) of £80,000.00 5-y-o plus
1st - €41,624.00 2nd - €19,136.00 3rd - €9,568.00 4th - €4,784.00 5th - €2,392.00 6th - €1,192.00
Formscan - A tricky Eider to solve with several appealing contenders lining up, but the fact that the last eight winners were all aged between nine and 11 doesn't bode well for the current favourite at the time of writing - Kitty's Light - who seeks to secure victory in this as a seven-year-old. Last year's winner Win My Wings was also the first winning favourite since 2012, another trend that goes against her stablemate. Although BUSHYPARK steps up in class following a facile success in the Yorkshire Grand National at Catterick last month, it may pay to take a chance on the gelded son of Le Fou. The grade-dropping Shanty Alley is another who warrants a market check, while Eva's Oskar can also go well.
