Betting

Forecast

Totalize (10/11), Kelka (2/1), Applaus (6/1), Carrickcross Boye (14/1), Roll Of Thunder (25/1), Scorpo (50/1)

Verdict
Both Applaus and KELKA were scheduled to clash at Newcastle on January 7th (abandoned) in what effectively looked a match. However, unfortunately for their respective connections, they've also the returning classy hurdler Totalize to think about now. Brian Ellison's nine-year-old should take this contest based on hurdles ratings, but those figures were achieved back in the summer of 2016, and he'll need to return in 'A1' condition in order to make a winning chasing debut. Therefore, a slight preference is for the grand mare Kelka, whose dam Scarvagh Diamond was a winner over fences, and has the top man in the North (in the shape of Brian Hughes) in the saddle.
