Betting

Forecast

Paddling (7/2), Well Above Par (9/2), Notonebuttwo (9/2), Hattons Hill (11/2), Rossmore's Pride (7/1), Royal Salute (9/1), Silverton (10/1), Knocklayde (22/1), Court Painter (40/1)

Verdict
No strong opinion is offered in a very winnable looking contest. A number of the runners would hold relatively solid claims based on the pick of some of their better efforts, including Hattons Hill and Silverton whilst the inexperienced Well Above Par should prove capable of winning races over fences for Lucinda Russell. Jumping is the achilles heel of the selection ROYAL SALUTE but if able to negotiate a safe passage, he's almost certainly well-treated from a mark of 102 based upon his earlier form for Anthony Honeyball, with the Bewley family no strangers to the Hexham winners enclosure.
  1. Royal Salute
  2. Well Above Par
  3. Silverton
