Forecasts

Black Op (1/3), Colonial Dreams (11/4), Fawsley Spirit (7/1), Aaron Lad (15/2), First Drift (16/1), Coisa Blanco (22/1), Destiny's Star (66/1), Katara Bay (100/1), Quasi (100/1)

Verdict

Not a bad contest of its type with Aaron Lad a potential winner if he can get back to what he was showing in Ireland previously and Colonial Dreams another for the short-list, though he needs to take a step up on his Ludlow debut. Fawsley Spirit is the more interesting of the debutantes and should be checked out in the market to gauge expectations, while First Drift obviously has some ability and if ready for this comeback run then he is an interesting candidate. However, BLACK OP looks to have a future in the sport and although beaten favourite at Newbury on his hurdles debut, he will benefit from a step up in trip here and should prove tough to beat.
