Forecast

French Crusader (4/7), Dandolo Du Gite (4/1), Daydream Aulmes (5/1), Dominateur (20/1), The Captain (40/1), Court Out (50/1), Ask Alice (100/1)

Verdict
This isn’t a bad little maiden hurdle and a few of these look more than capable of winning over obstacles. The standard is set by FRENCH CRUSADER who nearly beat a useful rival last time out over a trip that may have been a little too testing and he should find this 2m more suitable. Dandolo Du Gite looks as though he has the best form of those making their hurdling debuts having run well to land a Fontwell bumper last time. Daydream Aulmes and Dominateur also come here having shown ability in bumpers with the last-named of that duo having been a tenderly-handled on his only start so far.
  1. French Crusader
  2. Dominateur
