Forecast

The Big Bite (1/2), Demopolis (3/1), Darksideoftarnside (7/1), Diocese (40/1), Fibonacci (40/1), Noble Warrior (80/1)

Verdict
THE BIG BITE was a smart bumper performer and this son of top jumps sire Scorpion looks set to be even better over hurdles based on his smooth success at Chepstow. The potential fly in the ointment is Demopolis who won what has worked out to be a very warm contest in his only start in France back in April 2017. His fitness is the obvious doubt after such an absence but he still rates the best alternative to the selection. Noble Warrior was perhaps somewhat fortunate on his hurdles debut but as a recent winner he too has claims.
  1. The Big Bite
