Forecasts

Chef D'Equipe (5/4), Clondaw Anchor (9/4), Laughing Luis (10/1), Jen's Boy (10/1), Imperial Acolyte (10/1), Mon Port (14/1), The Captains Inn (20/1), Roccowithlove (50/1), Mr Palmtree (100/1), Fortescue (100/1), Super Mac (100/1), Royal Reef (100/1)

Verdict

A really interesting opener. Chef D'Equipe was well placed to win easily last time and should again be a handful under a penalty, while Clondaw Archer, Imperial Acolyte and Mon Port are other penalised runners of particular interest. Jen's Boy can probably make a good impact on his hurdles debut, but the same can be said of THE CAPTAINS INN, who ran well on debut in a Warwick bumper and can begin to repay some of his price tag on his first outing over hurdles.
  1. The Captains Inn
  2. Clondaw Anchor
  3. Jen's Boy
