Forecasts

Label Des Obeaux (1/3), Querry Horse (4/1), Hit The Highway (12/1), Optimistic Bias (25/1)

Verdict

In a fascinating novice chase LABEL DES OBEAUX is given the nod on the strength of a solid effort behind a useful winner at Lingfield last time out. He handles give in the ground and may prevail as long as the race doesn't become too tactical and turn into a sprint. Querry Horse will be suited by the longer trip here and is a genuine threat to the selection, while Hit The Highway can't be ruled out on his chasing bow despite disappointing over timber last time. Optimistic Bias appears to have a tough task. 1. Label Des Obeaux 2. Querry Horse 3. Hit The Highway
