Forecasts

Verdict

DR DES has taken well to hurdling and his latest effort in Grade 2 company puts him on a different level to his rivals and connections expect him to do even better over this longer trip. Du Destin has been green on both starts and, although expected to improve, he has an awful lot to find. Voie Dans Voie looks the one most likely to give the selection a race, although he would need that rival to underperform in order to win. Judge Judy is a nicely bred newcomer who could make the frame at a good price.
