Forecasts

Sir Erec (13/8), Tiger Tap Tap (2/1), Gardens of Babylon (5/1), Coeur Sublime (6/1), Surin (7/1), Chief Justice (12/1), Lamarckise (16/1), Got Trumped (20/1), Filon D'Oudairies (25/1), Morning Skye (33/1), Parisian (66/1)

Verdict

Former Aidan O'Brien inmate SIR ERIC has plenty of potential and he's expected to take a big step forward on just his second hurdles start. The son of Camelot can confirm the form with Tiger Tap Tap who represents last year's winning yard and wasn't beaten far by the selection last time. Coeur Sublime looked like the winner of a Grade 2 here last time before a fall at the last and his potential remains intact.
  1. Sir Erec
  2. Tiger Tap Tap
  3. Coeur Sublime
