Forecast

Simply Lucky (11/4), Point N Shoot (3/1), Pray For A Rainbow (9/2), Scartare (9/1), Sheelbewhatsheelbe (10/1), Abbey Street (14/1), Oi Oi (14/1), Cosmic Diamond (16/1), Midnight Magic (16/1), Flying Verse (16/1), Sizing Sahara (20/1), Lapford Lad (25/1), Kerry's Lord (50/1), Cecile De Volanges (100/1)

Verdict
This is a fascinating staying hurdle with a couple that could well improve markedly here headed by SIMPLY LUCKY whose Rules form is nothing to write home about at all but a wind op and a move to a top class and in-form yard off a lowly mark could well turn that one around. Oi Oi is a similarly interesting rival who is still lightly-raced and has a pedigree that means she could well be better over this sort of trip. Point N Shoot is in good form and will be dangerous if allowed an easy lead with Pray For A Rainbow looking as though he’ll be suited by a return to this trip having won easily on his penultimate start. Sheelbewhatsheelbe is another to consider having shaped better than his final
  1. Simply Lucky
