Forecasts

Articulum (5/2), Burrows Saint (7/2), Beyond The Law (7/2), Discorama (7/1), Sympa Des Flos (8/1), Dom Dolo (8/1), Dortmund Park (12/1), High Nellie (40/1)

Verdict

BURROWS SAINT boasts some strong form from his days in France and he can maintain his unbeaten record since joining this stable by following up November's Punchestown maiden hurdle success today. His biggest rival today may well prove to be stablemate Sympa Des Flos who appeared to appreciate the stamina test when breaking his maiden last time out while top weight Beyond The Law can claim third on his first attempt at this trip.
  1. Burrows Saint
