Forecast

Mercer's Troop (9/4), Texan Nomad (3/1), Percy Prosecco (7/1), Sensible Friend (8/1), Dyliev (9/1), Star of Rory (10/1), Three Bullet Gate (16/1), Wenceslaus (25/1), Sammylou (25/1), Incus (33/1), Boutan (50/1), Spader (66/1)

Verdict
Incus and Sensible Friend both represent stables better known for their exploits on the Flat, but neither can be ruled out here and the latter makes greater appeal on paper. Texan Nomad, Dyliev and Wenceslaus are others of interest, but preference is for MERCER'S TROOP, who is taken to find a bit of improvement for a decent hurdles debut.
  1. Mercer's Troop
  2. Dyliev
  3. Sensible Friend
