Betting

Forecast

William Hunter (15/8), Dakkar Collonges (5/2), No Hiding Place (7/2), Rio Quinto (7/1), Potters Hedger (11/1), Captain Peacock (25/1), Craigmor (33/1), No Alarm (50/1), Arthur's Reuben (150/1)

Verdict

Captain Peacock did well when stepped up to this sort of trip at Doncaster last time and enters calculations, though has to prove that he handles soft ground. No Alarm merits a market check, while stablemate Rio Quinto is probably better than he let on first time and now upped in trip, he can make a good hurdles debut. Potters Hedger can do better than at Towcester, while No Hiding Place is a likely contender if he can build on what he did at Huntingdon and Dakkar Collonges is not ruled out. However, WILLIAM HUNTER is going the right way over hurdles and he could be the one to break his duck today.
  1. William Hunter
  2. Dakkar Collonges
  3. No Hiding Place
