Forecast

Ferrobin (1/2), Jimmy The Digger (15/8), Sammy Bill (5/2), Arthur's Sixpence (10/1), Dreyfus (11/1), Sirobbie (12/1), Gold Fields (25/1), Middlescence (50/1), Lord Sparky (66/1)

Verdict
Only three have realistic prospects here with FERROBIN the clear pick on his C&D second to the useful Brecon Hill over C&D. On a more cautious note he has looked short of pace and will undoubtedly do better over further. Wind surgery raises a further question and he may not be one to chase if there are any signs of weakness in the market. Jimmy The Digger is a likeable type who galloped his rivals into submission at Ludlow and makes his eagerly awaited hurdling debut. There can be no doubt that he will expose any flaws in his rivals if jumping well enough. Sammy Bill is another chasing type and he is sure to have learnt a lot from his first run under rules.
