Forecasts

Carlos Du Fruitier (5/2), Gassin Golf (4/1), Away For Slates (6/1), Trans Express (7/1), Castafiore (9/1), Cougar Kid (12/1), Seymour Star (14/1), Otter Moon (14/1), Applesandpierres (16/1), Dubawi Island (50/1)

Verdict

A decent little handicap, and a race in which the majority of the field have something to offer when the conditions present. Castafiore would've been the selection over a shorter trip with her recent Doncaster success franked by both Gran Maestro and Crackdeloust. However, the suspicion is that she'll be slightly vulnerable over this longer trip (much like Gassin Golf), even allowing for Hereford being a relatively easy track. Trans Express has yet to score away from Exeter, but could keep progressing if the first time cheek-pieces keep him enthused, but a chance is taken on the largely unexposed CARLOS DU FRUITIER. Ben Pauling's six-year-old is yet to fully prove himself in handicap company, but he's generally heading in the right direction again over hurdles, and some of his earlier efforts in bumpers read particularly well.
  1. Carlos Du Fruitier
  2. Trans Express
  3. Castafiore
