Forecast

Diese Des Bieffes (5/1), William Henry (7/1), Red Indian (8/1), Coeur Blimey (8/1), River Frost (8/1), Le Patriote (10/1), Bags Groove (10/1), Topofthegame (11/1), Wishfull Dreaming (14/1), Spiritofthegames (16/1), Dino Velvet (16/1), Top Ville Ben (16/1), Dentley De Mee (25/1), Man From Mars (25/1), I Shot The Sheriff (33/1), El Terremoto (66/1)

Verdict
A superb renewal of this valuable handicap hurdle and a fitting tribute to the top-class horse after which it is named. River Frost boasts excellent course form and is a major contender, while Wishfull Dreaming is a facinating contender on his first start for a yard which has already plundered one big prize at Ascot this season. French import La Patriote is another intriguing runner for his shrewd stable, Spiritofthegames represents a similarly-canny yard and Topofthegame is of definite interest switched back to hurdles. However, the champion trainer has two major cards to play in William Henry and DIESE DES BIEFFES and the latter looks sure to be suited by this longer trip after running so well behind a talented rival over 2m last time. He could be well handicapped and has a talented claimer on board. Bags Groove and Red Indian add further spice to a crackerjack contest.
