Forecast

Purple King (1/1), Point Taken (4/1), Lantiern (9/2), Iconic Hero (9/1), Ruthless Article (12/1), Silver Character (12/1), Desert Trip (33/1), Potters Away (50/1), Caracas (50/1), Amlovi (125/1)

Verdict
PURPLE KING showed decent form over hurdles in France and he is taken to get off the mark over hurdles on his debut for his new stable. The selection was first passed the post prior to being disqualified last time out and he can get the better of Lantiern who showed good form in bumpers. Third place can go the way of Point Taken who wears cheekpieces for the first time.
  1. Purple King
  2. Lantiern
  3. Point Taken
