Forecasts

Birds Of Prey (8/13), Super Snipe (4/1), Kauto The King (7/1), Flinck (15/2), Taaffes Castle (14/1), Mouseinthehouse (16/1), Little Red Lion (50/1), Monjeni (66/1), Vanderbilt (100/1), Glengar (100/1), Joey Steel (200/1), Classy Afair (200/1)

Verdict

BIRDS OF PREY has already run below expectations over hurdles so wouldn't be one for maximum faith. However, his form is the best on offer and he may be worth another throw of the dice in a very weak race. Taffes Castle is an unknown quantity over hurdles but won't need to out of the ordinary to at least make the frame. Super Snipe and Mouseinthehouse make the most appeal from the rest and they complete the shortlist.
  1. Birds Of Prey
  2. Taaffes Castle
  3. Super Snipe
