Forecast

On Alberts Head (5/4), Borderlinedecision (5/1), Findusatgorcombe (7/1), Starlit Night (7/1), Aaman (11/1), Taste The Wine (12/1), Panis Angelicus (16/1), Ann Maries Reject (25/1), Kovera (33/1), Bobby Dove (33/1), Shes A Gangster (40/1), Pennies And Pounds (50/1), Telmadela (66/1)

Verdict
This is very winnable, and ON ALBERTS HEAD won't get many better opportunities to double his hurdles tally. He comes here in better form than most of these and if repeating his latest effort, will take a bit of beating. Findusatgorcombe should ensure there's no hanging around and the selection can't afford him too much rope on the front end, given he stays well. Taste The Wine hits the frame with some regularity and can take the bronze.
  1. On Alberts Head
  2. Findusatgorcombe
  3. Taste The Wine
