Forecast

Mr Pumblechook (1/6), Viva Vittoria (9/2), Eclair De Guye (13/2), Witches Glen (10/1), Soarlikeaneagle (20/1), Three In One (33/1), Fight For Love (40/1), Further North (50/1), Tractor Fred (66/1), Vetoncall (66/1), Bigdeal (100/1), Clondaw Robin (100/1), Writingsonthewall (100/1)

Verdict
MR PUMBLECHOOK won’t get many weaker/easier opportunities to break his maiden having finished a good 2nd last time in a much stronger event that this at Newbury. Most of the others in this will be headed down the handicap route once they get a mark with Bigdeal one who will be of interest in that sphere. Viva Vittoria will need to step up on her hurdling debut at Chepstow but she is likely to do so with the other mare in the race Witches Glen who is fit from point-to-points another who could make the frame with a tongue-tie on for the first time.
  1. Mr Pumblechook
  2. Viva Vittoria
  3. Witches Glen
