Betting

Forecast

Excitable Island (15/8), Sybarite (9/4), Swingbridge (11/2), Apple's Queen (7/1), Supreme Danehill (10/1), Crack Of Thunder (11/1), West Lake (20/1)

Verdict
EXCITABLE ISLAND ran well in finishing runner-up in a hot Intermediate Final at Cheltenham earlier this month and he can register a first win over regulation fences by taking this novices event. Of his rivals here the inconsistent Sybarite has disappointed over the larger obstacles in the past but put in one of his better efforts when finishing runner-up at Cheltenham last time out while proven stayer Supreme Danehill and the ex-French-trained Apple's Queen can fight it out for third.
  1. Excitable Island
  2. Sybarite
  3. Supreme Danehill
