Forecast

Hassle (5/4), Mizen Master (15/8), Oscar Hoof (5/1), Judge Earle (10/1), Charlie Papa Lima (14/1), Il Sicario (16/1), Stonemadforspeed (33/1)

Verdict
This isn’t too bad an event for the grade and it gives HASSLE a good chance of regaining the winning thread having disappointed a little of late but this is a far easier task and he is favoured by the weights. It will be fascinating to see what Ian Williams can do with the fragile Oscar Hoof who is more than capable of competing at this level with Mizen Master another to throw into the mix. Most of the others appear to have a tough task at the weights although Judge Earle can’t be totally left out of the equation.
  1. Hassle
  2. Oscar Hoof
  3. Mizen Master
