Betting

Forecast

Campeador (5/4), Roaring Bull (3/1), Paris Texas (11/2), Castafiore Park (7/1), Indian Monsoon (10/1), Sanibel Island (20/1), Judkin (25/1), School Lane (40/1)

Verdict
Campeador comes out best on hurdles rating but he was prone to accidents in that sphere and again came to grief on his chase bow at Navan. It would be brave to take a short price on him now, though he clearly has plenty ability. Stablemate Roaring Bull is a potential improver after one chase start and was also a decent hurdler. SANIBEL ISLAND has shown promise already over fences and might just have needed the run over C&D last time. With no standout candidate, he earns the vote. Indian Monsoon and Judkin are worth monitoring.
  1. Sanibel Island
  2. Roaring Bull
  3. Judkin
