Forecast

Young Lieutenant (4/9), Black Gerry (3/1), Baboin (16/1), Waitonit (20/1), Soldier To Follow (20/1), Moynihans Girl (66/1)

Verdict

The Exeter bumper winner YOUNG LIEUTENANT made a solid start to life over hurdles when finishing second best to Sir Valentine at Newbury. Thrown in deep in a Listed race at Haydock subsequently, he paid the price for racing keenly when a well held fifth to the progressive Thebannerkingrebel. Switched back to calmer waters he should hold all of the aces against these rivals, some of whom ought to be winning races further down the line.
