Forecast

Diamond Guy (2/1), Irish Prophecy (3/1), Shoal Bay (7/2), Smuggler's Blues (7/1), Serosevsky (16/1), Big Difference (16/1), Penneys Hun (25/1), Cranstal (28/1), Blushing Red (33/1), Pirolo (50/1), Nanny Makfi (50/1), City Star (66/1), Mutoondresdashorse (80/1), Fred's Filly (150/1), Indigo Stamp (250/1)

Verdict
Bumper winner DIAMOND GUY can get off the mark at the second attempt over hurdles by taking this novice hurdle race. The selection represents the in form stable of Paul Nicholls (9/42) and having won a bumper here in the past he can get the better of Shoal Bay who was last seen contesting a Grade 1 event at last months Cheltenham Festival. Sandown winner Irish Prophecy can claim third on his first outing of 2018.
  1. Diamond Guy
  2. Shoal Bay
  3. Irish Prophecy
