Betting

Forecast

Tintern Theatre (15/8), Atirelarigo (11/4), Town Parks (9/2), Ckalco Des Loges (11/2), Tarrona (8/1), Wynford (100/1), Over To Midnight (200/1)

Verdict
A competitive opener to the eight-race card and several of these will fancy their chance of winning this. It looks as though despite a win over fences that Atirelarigo is happier over hurdles and his effort at Uttoxeter last time out was a sound one as was that of Tintern Theatre who has faced some tough tasks since winning here. Tarrona may find drying conditions against him and its Ckalco Des Loges and TOWN PARKS who are the favoured duo here. The former looks as though he will enjoy this trip while the latter has run well before over C&D and acquitted himself well on his handicap debut last time out.
