Forecasts

Destrier (2/1), Notre Ami (9/4), Nelson's Touch (5/2), Elixir De Nutz (5/1), Working Class (7/1), Mere Ironmonger (8/1), Kloud Gate (25/1), Sandford Castle (25/1), Gothic Empire (40/1), Sanok (50/1), Involve (50/1), Legend Of France (66/1), Her Dream (100/1)

Verdict

This doesn’t look as strong or as deep as the first division with DESTRIER having already won twice over hurdles looking sure to appreciate this drop in grade and despite the double penalty he can get back to winning ways. The two other penalised runner’s Nelson’s Touch and Notre Ami also set a decent standard with the former preferred of that duo. There are some ex-useful Flat performers here who may take a hand with Gothic Empire, Kloud Gate and Working Class amongst that group. Elixir De Nutz will find this more suitable than the stiff task he faced last time while Mere Ironmonger should be watched in the market; it’s hard to forget his taking bumper debut here in 2016.
