Betting

Forecast

Smiths Cross (2/5), Alrightjack (4/1), Topofthecotswolds (8/1), Karakoram (9/1), Dessie's Diamond (10/1), Playa Blanca (16/1), Lace Bonnet (66/1), Given Name (100/1), Test Ride (100/1)

Verdict
The progressive SMITHS CROSS looks the safest option in an ordinary maiden hurdle. Alrightjack was well supported last time out but didn't quite fire on all cylinders. This is a weaker race, so he may be up to redeeming himself. Karakoram is exposed as ordinary but did run well last time and can make the frame of in a similar frame of mind here. Support for Topofthecotswolds would also be interesting to note.
  1. Smiths Cross
  2. Alrightjack
  3. Karakoram
