Forecasts

Nordican Bleue (5/4), Chaparral Prince (15/8), Bodes Well (8/1), Twenty Twenty (16/1), Angel Of The North (20/1), Mercer's Troop (20/1), Mutanaqel (25/1), Acquirer (33/1), Red Miracle (50/1), The Accountant (50/1), Powerful Society (50/1), Roser Moter (50/1), The Naughty Step (100/1), Swiss Psalm (200/1)

Verdict

Time may tell that NORDICAN BLEUE ran into a smart prospect when second at Worcester on her hurdles bow, and she looks the likeliest winner on the evidence of that run. Chaparral Prince appeals most of those without hurdles experience, and ought to make a fist of his new discipline, while Mercer's Troop might prove best of Dan Skelton's trio despite jockey bookings suggesting otherwise.
  1. Nordican Bleue
  2. Chaparral Prince
  3. Mercer's Troop
