Forecast

The Big Bite (9/4), Meep Meep (9/4), Harambe (9/4), Ebony Gale (14/1), Jammy George (20/1), Tedham (25/1), Daydream Aulmes (40/1), Cilaos Glace (50/1), Boldmere (50/1), Top Of The Charts (50/1), Three Bullet Gate (100/1), Don Herbager (100/1), Legend Of Zorro (100/1), Eva's Oskar (150/1), Monkey Harris (200/1), Rowley Park (200/1)

Verdict
There should be plenty to take out of this maiden hurdles which contains some good prospects. Harambe showed plenty of promise in bumpers last year and excelled himself when gaining a place in a Grade 2 Aintree bumper. Aintree bumper form is also represented by Meep Meep who has already won here in a bumper before her excellent run in a Grade 2 bumper at the Grand National meeting; she faces a stiffer test here in open company over a shorter trip than her hurdles debut. The Festival bumper is often a rich source of hurdles winners and THE BIG BITE could well add to that score on his hurdles debut as long as he settles better. Ebony Gale, Tedham and Top Of The Charts are others to note.
  1. The Big Bite
  2. Harambe
  3. Ebony Gale
