Forecast

Smackwater Jack (1/1), Little Jack (15/8), Financial Conduct (13/2), Towards The Dawn (10/1), Cold As Ice (14/1), Dry Lightening (40/1), Diamond Rose (50/1), Mr Palmtree (50/1), Mix Of Clover (66/1), Rizzardo (100/1), Bob Maxwell (100/1)

Verdict
SMACKWATER JACK has the best of the hurdling form judged on his unfortunate seasonal bow and the return to this trip will see him improve on his latest effort. Financial Conduct was a useful Flat performer and makes his hurdling debut over what looks the right sort of trip and with the yard's horses going well. Little Jack is a bumper winner representing a top yard and could go close if handling the slower conditions.
  1. Smackwater Jack
