Forecasts

Getaday (3/1), Ronald Pump (5/1), Bitsandpieces (5/1), Mary Frances (7/1), Lord Of The Island (8/1), Rooster Byron (8/1), The Gatechecker (12/1), Uaintseenothingyet (12/1), Riverdene (14/1), Elwood (16/1), Forever Gold (28/1), Champagne Harmony (33/1), Sonny B (40/1), Force Of Forces (50/1)

Verdict

Lord Of The Island is an intriguing challenger from the UK and the form of his recent Exeter fourth has already been advertised. Any market support behind him would be notable. A chasing career didn't quite work out for UAINTSEENNOTHINGYET, with absences barring any progress. He goes handicap hurdling from a workable mark and might go well under in-form Mark Walsh now. Bitsandpieces and Getaday, second here in C&D maiden in January, are both capable of getting in the scrap for honours.
  1. Uaintseenothingyet
