Forecast

Blixt (4/5), Shimmer's Rock (5/1), Good To Flow (5/1), Chestnut Brave (7/1), Mistheatre (12/1), Miss Sassie (20/1), Crackerdancer (25/1), Trumps Ace (33/1), Raveloe (33/1), Cherryade (33/1), Jerigo (66/1), Fashionistalady (66/1)

Verdict
Hurricane Fly's half-sister BLIXT will be much-watched on her first racecourse appearance and coming from the champion trainer's powerful bumper string, she is likely to go off strong favourite for this finale. Out of Yeats, it will be something of a disappointment should she fail to make a winning start. Good To Flow and Chestnut Brave have run well in these contests already while Raveloe has done likewise in the UK before relocating. Rules debutant Shimmer's Rock is worth considering having done well in two point-to-point outings. 1. Blixt 2. Good To Flow 3. Shimmer's Rock
