Forecast

Boreham Bill (13/8), Dandy Dan (2/1), Black Mischief (5/1), Classic Ben (7/1), Ey Up Rocky (10/1), Lygon Rock (50/1), Ask Nellie (50/1), The Cannister Man (50/1), Cocker (50/1), Minella Whisper (66/1), Ballina Lady (100/1)

Verdict
The three penalised runners may find it hard to give away the weight to BOREHAM BILL who shaped well over hurdles at Newbury last time out and that form is starting to look strong with the second and fifth both winning next time out. Black Mischief probably didn’t stay last time out and this shorter trip may see him fare better while Dandy Dan makes some appeal despite being well beaten at Doncaster last time out although the winner is useful. Classic Ben showed in bumpers that he was useful and although he needs to tidy up his jumping there looks to be more to come from him and his stable are in good form at the moment. Of the hurdling debutantes easily the most interesting is Ey Up Rocky who won well from a useful sort on his bumper debut and now makes his debut for a new yard and he should be noted in the market.
  1. Boreham Bill
  2. Classic Ben
  3. Ey Up Rocky
