Forecasts

Generalisation (5/4), Iamastartoo (4/1), Extrapolate (9/2), Touch Of Oscar (6/1), Another Cyclone (6/1), Yarraman (10/1), Mountain Fox (25/1), Classic Escape (28/1), Jackdaws Lane (50/1), Currig's Girl (66/1), Ballinlongig (66/1), Kilcolgan Rocket (100/1), No Show Jones (100/1), It's Frightening (100/1)

Verdict

Gigginstown House Stud boast a strong hand in this maiden hurdle and preference is for their EXTRAPOLATE who has run well in a couple of bumpers so far. In the same ownership Generalisation performed well when debuting over hurdles and he can finish runner-up ahead of Yarraman who improved on previous efforts when placed here last time.
