Forecast

Top Decision (3/1), Galactic Power (9/2), Cuban Pete (5/1), Head Lad (8/1), Apple Mack (9/1), Shroughmore Lass (10/1), Bomber's Moon (10/1), Great Fairy (14/1), Agincourt Reef (16/1), Scales (25/1), Knight Commander (28/1), Sin Sin (33/1), Where Now (33/1), Dun Bay Creek (50/1)

Verdict
TOP DECISION was a winner last time out and he is taken to register a second hurdles victory by taking this competitive looking opening contest. The selection has the forecast going to suit and can get the better of Head Lad who wasn't beaten far in a competitive event last time out. Third place can go the way of handicap debutant Apple Mack who ran well over this trip last time out.
  1. Top Decision
  2. Head Lad
  3. Apple Mack
