Forecasts

Boutan (11/2), Goldrapper (6/1), Codeshare (7/1), Cottonvale (8/1), Hear The Chimes (17/2), Sinakar (9/1), Knight Commander (10/1), Spiritual Man (12/1), Brunel Woods (14/1), Shivermetimbers (18/1), Midnight Gem (20/1), All Good Things (20/1), Mr Fenton (22/1), Market Road (25/1), Kingston (25/1), Royale Jonquille (33/1), Diamond Rose (40/1), Awaywiththeblues (40/1)

Verdict

SPIRITUAL MAN has a top jockey booked for his return to hurdles and he is taken to register a victory in this opening handicap contest. The selection hails from a decent yard and he can get the better of Boutan who ran well when fourth here last time out. Codeshare remains open to improvement and he can take third on handicap debut.
