Forecasts

Wild Bill (2/1), Warden Hill (11/4), Carlton Ryan (3/1), Vasco Du Mee (8/1), Popaway (10/1), Mr Madeit (14/1), Master Workman (33/1), Hurraboru (66/1), Flash Tommie (66/1)

Verdict

Quite an open looking hunter chase, and preference is just for WILD BILL who looks like he might have a good future ahead of him in point-to-points. He always threatened to be a useful performer for Evan Williams and now he may get his chance to prove it. Warden Hill was another to do well under Rules and his recent win shows him to be in good form, and he and Carlton Ryan can fight out the places. Vasco De Mee might want a bit further. 1. Wild Bill 2. Warden Hill 3. Carlton Ryan
