Forecast

Ermyn's Emerald (9/2), Western Morning (6/1), Galactic Power (13/2), Realms Of Fire (13/2), Age Of Wisdom (9/1), Monk's View (10/1), Loud As Lions (11/1), Hear The Chimes (12/1), Blue Rhythm (12/1), Druid's Folly (14/1), Zante (16/1), Gamekeeper Bill (20/1), Glorious Boru (33/1), Indian Reel (40/1), Keynote (50/1), Patience Tony (50/1), Blazing Glen (66/1)

Verdict
Western Morning sets a poser as he is undoubtedly well-handicapped on the basis of his win over fences. However, with connections confirming he is a different proposition over the bigger obstacles, he is worth opposing here. Loud As Lions was supported for his handicap debut when conditions were softer than ideal and he may be a stronger proposition now, but preference is for AGE OF WISDOM. The winner of a Class 3 Flat handicap over 2m should be better suited to this trip and makes his hurdles handicap bow in modest grade off an attractive mark with his stable in form.
  1. Age Of Wisdom
  2. Loud As Lions
  3. Western Morning
