Forecast

Lalor (10/11), Harefield (4/1), Kapcorse (4/1), Onefortheroadtom (7/1), Lord Duveen (14/1), Rocket Ronnie (16/1), Kilbricken Storm (20/1), Snapdragon Fire (66/1), Alka Step (66/1), Ready And Able (80/1), Midnight Magic (100/1), Hatchet Jack (150/1), Good Man Vinnie (150/1), Gentleman Farmer (150/1), Hands Of Stone (150/1), Thomas Patrick (200/1), Corbett Court (250/1), Winter Squaw (250/1)

Verdict
A race which will almost certainly offer plenty for the future, with the likes of Harefield, Kilbricken Storm and Lord Duveen almost sure to win their fair share of races; but probably not today. JP McManus has been supplying winners right, left and centre over the past couple of weeks, and he is doubly represented by Kapcorse (Paul Nicholls) and Onefortheroadtom (Harry Fry). Preference is for the latter named gelding who cost £100,000 in April after success in an Oldcastle point-to-point. Fry saddled If The Cap Fits to success in a similar contest here earlier in the month, and if this four-year-old is as talented as his stablemate, he should be thereabouts. However, LALOR stands out on bumper form. He beat If The Cap Fits (fourth) when taking the Grade 2 Aintree bumper in April, and there should be no reason as to why his trainer Richard Woollacott can't bring out the best of his ground versatile stable star over hurdles.
  1. Lalor
