Forecasts

Born For War (2/1), Cafe Au Lait (3/1), Boss Mans Ladder (10/3), Birch Hill (4/1), Burrows Lane (9/2), Allez Jacques (5/1), Soupy Soups (8/1), Finula (14/1)

Verdict

Cafe Au Lait made a very good start over fences at Bangor and is respected despite the 10lb rise. Boss Mans Ladder is a consistent hurdler who could well improve for going over fences and shouldn't be discounted. Slight preference is for chasing debutante BORN FOR WAR who went very close on handicap debut over hurdles last time and looks like a chaser in the making with this longer trip set to suit.
  1. Born For War
