Betting

Forecast

Shanaway (7/2), Cockley Beck (9/2), Arizona Bound (6/1), Border Victor (7/1), Highland Peak (15/2), Classical Sound (8/1), Le Hachette (12/1), Our Morris (16/1), Dutch Canyon (20/1), Forth Cave (20/1), Gentleman James (20/1), I'll Run With You (20/1), Honeychile Ryder (33/1), Solway Palm (33/1)

Verdict

SHANAWAY finished good second here last time out and he can take this novices handicap hurdle on his first start over this trip. The selection was staying on over shorter last time out and he can take this with Le Hachette, fourth on handicap debut on her penultimate outing capable of finishing second ahead of Cockley Beck who wears cheekpieces for the first time.
