15/8

25/1

Midnight Legend a brother to 2m-2m3f hurdle winner Midnight Midge out of a winning dam over hurdles. Yard hardly known for bumper success so probably best watched.

Betting

Forecast

Lydford Lad (15/8), Pol Crocan (7/2), The Big Sting (4/1), George Of Naunton (11/2), That Ole Chestnut (8/1), Presenting Yeats (14/1), Majestic Merlin (25/1)

Verdict

Obviously newcomers races always must be treated with a degree of trepidation but following Paul Nicholls runners in bumpers at Wincanton is rarely a bad policy and his well related LYDFORD LAD looks the safest bet at this stage. Of course the market will be informative in such a contest with George Of Naunton, Pol Crocan and The Big Sting all respected but greatly feared if the market is positive in their favour.
