Forecast

Style De Garde (10/11), Gumball (11/8), Embole (14/1), Esprit De Somoza (20/1), Aiguille Rouge (20/1)

Verdict
Just the five go to post for this decent juvenile hurdle and Gumball looks sure to get an easy lead if he retains the same run style as before and he could be hard to pull back around here although his jumping does leave a little to be desired. For that reason STYLE DE GARDE is preferred given how well he moved through his last race at Newbury when winning with a bit in hand. Both Embole and Aiguille Rouge have shown that they have ability although this is a step up in class for both of them.
  1. Style De Garde
  2. Aiguille Rouge
  3. Gumball
