Forecasts

Riders Onthe Storm (6/4), Great Trango (3/1), Plan Of Attack (5/1), Niven (13/2), Icario (7/1), Toulson (16/1), Caveat Emptor (25/1), Bachelor Pad (25/1), Crown Of Thorns (33/1), Share The Honour (33/1), The Reaping Race (50/1), Jack Lee (50/1), Shadows Return (50/1), Western Sea (66/1), Feisty Madam (66/1), Just Another Lady (66/1), Nonameyet (66/1), Flamingo Lane (80/1), Daring Decree (100/1), Hyman Roth (100/1), The Secret One (100/1)

Verdict

The early pace could possibly come from Toulson and Great Trango with Icario chasing behind the leaders. You can also expect to see NIVEN up there with the leader out of trouble in the early stages. The dual heavy ground winner could take some stopping here as he bids to win his first hurdle race in five. Interesting Point-to-point import Plan Of Attack and the consistent and solid Great Trango are the biggest dangers.
  1. Niven
  2. Plan Of Attack
  3. Great Trango
