Forecasts

Niceandeasy (9/4), Saint Freule (5/2), Jeu De Mots (7/2), Only Orvieto (6/1), Allmyown (9/1), Secret Passenger (18/1), Bit Of A Quirke (20/1), Mah Mate Bob (50/1), Spinning Scooter (66/1), Corinda (100/1), Avondhu Pearl (100/1)

Verdict

The hurdles form on offer here is limited and generally to a moderate level so NICEANDEASY is worth chancing on his hurdling debut. He looked useful on his only racecourse outing and the ground here will be no concern to him. It will be interesting to see the return of Only Orvieto who looked good on debut and whose latest run should probably be forgotten, market support for her would be significant. There are a couple of former point-to-pointers worth noting here and Saint Freule could be the best of them.
  1. Niceandeasy
  2. Only Orvieto
  3. Saint Freule
