Storm Forecast (10/11), Well Above Par (6/4), Fire And Smoke (9/2), Bruichladdich (8/1), Rain In The Face (40/1), Cataclysm (100/1)

Verdict

Storm Forecast brings a fair level of C&D form into this moderate novices hurdle, but he's been off the track since March 2016, and missed a planned run at Sedgefield last month, so his fitness is taken on trust. Similar comments apply to ex Irish pointer Fire and Smoke, who was bred by his trainers late father Donald Snr, so he would be a poignant winner for a yard which introduced the talented Lastbutnotleast to hurdles at this track in December 2016. However, with fitness assured, WELL ABOVE PAR gets the nod to build upon a decent enough opening hurdles effort at Ayr earlier this month.
