Forecast

Gallahers Cross (1/1), Southern Sam (4/1), Igor (4/1), Larkbarrow Lad (10/1), Ask Dillon (12/1), Reve (33/1), Manofthemoment (33/1), Darksideoftarnside (50/1), Alkopop (50/1), Drama King (100/1), High Up In The Air (150/1), El Hageb Rose (200/1)

Verdict
Reve looked unlucky last time and should get involved, while Southern Sam and Larkbarrow Lad shaped well on their hurdling debuts and ought to improve. However, recent course runne-up Igor and GALLAHERS CROSS give Nicky Henderson a strong hand and the latter is readily preferred on his hurdling debut. Ask Dillon is worth a market check on his jumping bow.
  1. Gallahers Cross
  2. Igor
  3. Reve
