Forecast

Hero's Welcome (5/2), Effernock Lad (7/1), Walkers Point (8/1), Weekend Offender (8/1), Back To Bataan (9/1), Boris Boru (9/1), Glendaars Warrior (12/1), British Art (14/1), Holy Motivation (14/1), Klassy Kay (16/1), Piranto (16/1), Mistiness (20/1), Shabra's Bertolini (20/1), Bracka Lily (25/1), Airdrigh (25/1), Better Back Bob (25/1), Tyrone Tiger (40/1)

Verdict
A weak event and very unlikely the course record will be under threat given that half the field are likely to be better suited to a stronger test of stamina. This may help WEEKEND OFFENDER utilise his speed form the Flat and help the gelding get off the mark at the first time of asking in a handicap hurdle. Hero's Welcome had the pick of a few entries this week, so may be one to bear in mind if supported, while British Art is being kept busy and is also worth a betting check. Support for Shabra's Bertolini to make the frame could also be significant.
  1. Weekend Offender
  2. Hero's Welcome
