Forecast

Tough But Honest (15/8), Our Rachael (7/2), Cottonvale (6/1), Euro So Brave (7/1), Jack The Hat (7/1), Select Opportunity (10/1), The Trigger (12/1), Northern Emperor (14/1), Beneficial Society (14/1), Chosen Hour (20/1), Wild Desire (33/1), Piranto (33/1), Boston Babe (33/1), Gertoni (33/1), Solent Lad (33/1), Tortueuse (33/1), Speedbird One (33/1)

Verdict
OUR RACHAEL has been in such good form on the Flat recently that she is hard to oppose here. Two victories since August reveal notable improvement and she looks nicely weighted here judged on her last run over hurdles. That form has worked out splendidly and her astute trainer has found a good opportunity to continue the winning streak. Tough But Honest blew his chances with mistakes last time but has to be respected in his recovery mission with better ground providing cause for optimism. Euro So Brave is a potential improver in handicap company over this trip.
  1. Our Rachael
