Betting

Forecast

Shaman Du Berlais (5/4), Ruthless Article (11/8), Dorking Boy (4/1), Footloose (10/1), Bluebell Sally (66/1), Atomic Article (100/1), Earth Spirit (125/1)

Verdict

SHAMAN DU BERLAIS showed good form earlier this year and having proved his stamina over further he can register a first hurdles success in this opening novice contest. Ruthless Article has been in good form so far this season and he can take second under top weight while third place can go to Footloose who is stepping up in trip.
