Forecasts

Caro Des Flos (2/5), Percy (7/2), Devil's Glen (7/2), Sometimes A Fox (8/1), Fiveaftermidnight (16/1), Play The Dane (16/1), Imperial Reprise (33/1), Trissino (33/1), Lady Margorie (50/1), Global Tour (50/1)

Verdict

CARO DES FLOS looks to have been found a decent opportunity in this opening maiden hurdle and the son of Tiger Groom can register his first success dropping in trip today. The selection brings some decent form into this contest and can get the better of Devil's Glen who representing useful connections on today's racecourse debut. Percy could finish only fifth behind a useful looking rival on hurdling debut and he can claim third today.
  1. Caro Des Flos
  2. Devil's Glen
  3. Percy
