Betting

Forecast

Trixster (5/2), Full Tilt (3/1), Easyrun De Vassy (9/2), The Toojumpa (9/2), Ballyart (5/1), Good And Hardy (14/1), Sharp Getaway (66/1), Henchard (66/1), Corsecombe (200/1)

Verdict

TRIXSTER has been in decent form in novice hurdles so far this season and he can record a second hurdling victory by taking this competitive novice contest. Easyrun De Vassy showed promise on his debut over hurdles here last time out and he can take second upped in distance while third can go to The Toojumpa who won impressively in handicap company last time.
