Ballinahow Bill (15/8), Greensalt (15/8), Path To Freedom (4/1), Streets Of Milan (12/1), Big Bang De Loire (16/1), For Yes (33/1), Fair Exchange (33/1), Milano Magic (33/1), Wizadora (66/1), Worcester Pearmain (66/1), Treliver Manor (66/1), Steel's Cotton (66/1), Call Zac (80/1)

Verdict
Forget the 2000 Guineas, the Kentucky Derby and the Thirsk Hunt Cup, in Northumberland the first Saturday in May is all about the Heart Of All England. A prestigious Maiden Hunters' Chase, no quarter will be given a fiercely competitive contest. Justin Landy has proved himself to be an able handler with Ardea, so Ballinahow Bill looks a likely type (holds Streets Of Milan). Both Daragh Bourke and Tony Dobbin know what is takes to ride Hexham winners, and they saddle Milano Magic, Worcester Pearmain and Treliver Manor. However, Aintree Foxhunters third GREENSALT brings the standout form into the race, and looks the likeliest winner for the Easterby's.
  1. Greensalt
  2. Ballinahow Bill
  3. Fair Exchange
