Forecast

Strong Glance (5/2), Sevarano (7/2), Bang On Frankie (7/2), Betameche (7/1), Dashel Drasher (9/1), Jaytrack Parkhomes (10/1), Bright Forecast (20/1), Brigade of Guards (40/1), Beaufort West (50/1), Howling Milan (50/1), Mere Ironmonger (50/1), Fat Sam (66/1), West To The Bridge (100/1), Discko Des Plages (100/1), Savanna Roar (100/1), Iconic Muddle (100/1), Melchior King (125/1), The Rocket Park (125/1), Megalodon (200/1), Boland's Mill (250/1)

Verdict
In a race lacking strength in depth two contenders rather stand out and preference is for Oliver Sherwood's SEVERANO who followed up his useful bumper form by finishing second at Sandown on heavy ground. There should be more to come now with fitness and experience added and he gets the nod over Bang On Frankie whose Cheltenham third is working out really well. Dual bumper winners Strong Glance and Betameche are the most appealing first time hurdles runners with the former preferred given Betameche's near three-year absence.
  1. Sevarano
  2. Bang On Frankie
  3. Strong Glance
