Forecast

Smiths Cross (11/8), Dominateur (13/8), Storm Arising (10/1), Peeping Tom (12/1), Cavok (12/1), Woulduadamandeveit (14/1), Storm Wizard (33/1), Save The Pennies (33/1), Secret Reprieve (50/1), J'Ai Froid (50/1), Summit Like Herbie (66/1), Ruffling Feathers (66/1), Iwilldoit (100/1), Big Man Clarence (100/1), Telson Barley (100/1), Game In The Park (150/1)

Verdict
SMITHS CROSS shaped as if this extra distance would suit when placed last time out and he is taken to get off the mark at the second attempt over hurdles in this large field novice event. Dominateur sets the standard on form and he is taken to finish runner-up following a good effort here last time out while third can go to Storm Arising who represents a leading stable.
  1. Smiths Cross
  2. Dominateur
  3. Storm Arising
