Betting

Forecast

Humble Hero (7/4), Idilico (5/2), Back On The Lash (4/1), Ballon Onabudget (9/2), War Chief (16/1), Takbeer (20/1), Ballyellis (50/1), Don Juan Du Gouet (50/1), Blue Ballerina (100/1), Camlad Kingfisher (100/1), W S Gilbert (100/1)

Verdict

HUMBLE HERO showed up well when placed on hurdling debut last time out and he can go one better than when finishing runner-up on that occasion. The selection represents a top stable and looks capable of getting the better of the four-year-old Idlico who ran well in handicap company last time. Third place can go the way of Ballon Onabudget who debuts over hurdles and for this stable.
