Forecasts

Verdict

Bright Forecast was gutsy on debut despite some foibles and he is respected under a penalty, as there certainly looked to be improvement in him. However, he might struggle to successfully concede weight to newcomer HUMBLE HERO, who is in good hands and if he can hurdle fluently on his first attempt, then he may have too much speed. Apres Le Deluge also makes some appeal along with Tegerek and Thibault.
