Forecasts

Quest For Life (12/5), Nemean Lion (5/1), Arthurs Secret (5/1), Its Pandorama (8/1), Ten Trees (8/1), Well Smitten (9/1), Red Danaher (12/1), Moscanisi (16/1), Full Shift (25/1), Howwoulduno (25/1), Sigurd (40/1)

Verdict

Red Danaher is better over hurdles than fences and is respected returned to this discipline. Quest For Life is very likely to run his race again and is sure to be in the shake up. Arthurs Secret will enjoy this more than the bog at Kelso last time and the drop in trip should suit but they may all struggle to beat WELL SMITTEN. He looks on a nice mark for handicap debut and with the cheekpieces added and can record a success.
  1. Well Smitten
  2. Arthurs Secret
  3. Red Danaher
