Forecasts

Ridgeway Flyer (7/4), Bobo Mac (5/2), Alfie's Choice (7/1), Lexington Law (7/1), Royal Reserve (15/2), Johanos (12/1), Calling Des Blins (33/1), Coopers Square (33/1), Our Delboy (66/1), Autum Rain (100/1), Spin Point (100/1), Does It In Style (150/1), Alpha Indi (200/1), Quigley Court (200/1), Over To Midnight (250/1), Sky of Stars (250/1)

Verdict

Royal Reserve is faced with a much easier task today having been behind the likes of Charli Parcs and Coeur De Lion on his previous starts. He should finish better than the fourth he's managed in all three races over hurdles so far, while Ridgeway Flyer ran a nice race when settling much better last time at Exeter. Preference though, is for BOBO MAC. The Irish import wasn't given an easy time of things when making his hurdling debut in the mud at Limerick last time but still managed to shape encouragingly, and he can provide the answer here on his first start for Tom Symonds. 1. Bobo Mac 2. Royal Reserve 3. Ridgeway Flyer
