Forecast

Massini Man (3/1), Panic And Run (3/1), Pemberley (5/1), Precious Bounty (5/1), Shanty Alley (8/1), Whatsmeanttobe (16/1), Loud As Lions (20/1), Dr Oakley (25/1), Telson Barley (28/1), Arcade Attraction (40/1), Turbotim (66/1)

Verdict
Not the strongest race of the day and unlikely we'll see a Cheltenham Festival prospect emerge from this test. However, it will be a good level for MASSINI MAN to make his debut over hurdles and, given the form of his yard, the gelding is the first one recommended to note when forming the shortlist of serious contenders. Pemberley is another to bear in mind if the market shows him in a positive light; while the Phillip Hobbs-trained pair: Precious Bounty and Whatsmeanttobe are others worth considering - the latter may be the better value option this time around.
  1. Massini Man
  2. Pemberley
  3. Whatsmeanttobe
