Forecast

Da Baba Elephant (9/5), Sharney Sike (5/1), Dartford Warbler (11/2), Ever So Much (7/1), Eager To Know (15/2), Super Lunar (12/1), Titian Boy (14/1), Court Painter (18/1), Monbeg Cave (20/1), Roll Of Thunder (22/1), Rare Legend (28/1), Captain Sharpe (33/1), Milans Well (66/1), Trillerin Minella (100/1)

Verdict
DA BABA ELEPHANT was in good form last year and he can resume winning ways on his return from a break. The selection has a leading jockey booked to ride in this and can see off Ever So Much who is well handicapped on his old hurdles form while Sharney Sike, who is 2/2 here can finish third this time.
  1. Da Baba Elephant
  2. Ever So Much
  3. Sharney Sike
