Forecast

Diplomate Sivola (4/7), Path To Freedom (6/1), Dance Of Time (6/1), Ballinahow Bill (8/1), Wither Or Not (10/1), Buck Dancing (25/1), Pop The Champers (66/1), Bedford Forrest (66/1)

Verdict
Unlike a lot of horses with lofty ratings that run in Hunter Chases DIPLOMATE SIVOLA has actually lived up to his recent and although he’s been beaten in two previous races in this sphere he looks more the finished article now. He arguably should have won last time out at Taunton and a repeat of anything like that form should see him home here. The battle for the places may well be a more absorbing contest with early support for Wither Or Not suggesting he can build on his impressive (in numbers at least) point-to-point form. Path To Freedom is another who should turn in a respectable display along with Ballinahow Bill who ran into a very useful sort in point-to-points last time.
  1. Diplomate Sivola
  2. Wither Or Not
  3. Path To Freedom
