Forecast

Pound A Stroke (4/1), Loughnavalley (9/2), Zagnzig (5/1), Global Fert (6/1), Hide The Biscuit (8/1), Folly Dat (10/1), Cubomania (14/1), Maureen's Star (16/1), Graineyhill (20/1), Misty Millie (25/1), Rossmore's Pride (25/1), Urbanist (25/1), Epsilon Indi (25/1), Shipwreck (25/1), In Our Blood (25/1), Rock On Westie (25/1), Boston Babe (33/1)

Verdict
GLOBAL FERT won in the style of a horse capable of following up at Uttoxeter last week and he can defy top weight to take this competitive looking handicap hurdle. The selection was winning for the first time on that occasion and can defy a penalty today with fellow last time out winner Pound A Stroke the most likely to chase him home today. Zagnzig has been putting in some good efforts in defeat of late and he can finish third today.
  1. Global Fert
  2. Pound A Stroke
  3. Zagnzig
