Forecast

Royal Hawk (2/5), Unicorn (2/1), Delta Work (4/1), Killasser Boy (10/1), Atlas (20/1), Oakmont (20/1), Precious Gold (20/1), Balakani (25/1), Brontide (40/1), Sizeable Sting (40/1), Denham Sound (50/1), Kelley (50/1), Blue Eyed Lucy (66/1), Reddot Dancer (66/1), Dublin Road (66/1), Cubomania (100/1), Global Racing (100/1), Celtic Dancer (100/1), Youandiwillfly (100/1), Atlantic Jet (100/1)

Verdict
The market is likely to prove a valuable aid here with some leading yards bringing out interesting newcomers. Royal Hawk possesses jumping experience in his native France and represents the champion trainer / jockey combination so is to be respected. His form isn't immediately inspiring however and he could prove vulnerable. Delta Work is also a continental import and was a winner of his only outing on the Flat in France, he too has claims, but the vote goes to UNICORN who achieved a rating of 95 on the Flat and is very interesting having left Ballydoyle ahead of his jumping bow. Celtic Dancer's trainer has an excellent record with hurdlers and does well at this venue while Balakani and Precious Gold are others worth paying attention to in the betting.
