Forecasts

Bletchley Castle (7/2), Velvet Maker (4/1), Llancillo Lord (9/2), Net D'Ecosse (5/1), Village Vic (6/1), Brave Jaq (6/1), Witness In Court (8/1), Bubble O'Clock (16/1), Tusa Eire (25/1), Downbythestrand (28/1), Red Inca (33/1), O Maonlai (33/1), Boher Call (66/1), Mr Sawyer (66/1), Beau De Tabel (100/1)

Verdict

Few of these have convincing profiles but BRAVE JAQ seems to act well here and can go one better than last year. Llancillo Lord comes into the reckoning providing conditions remain dry as will Net D'Ecosse if recent point-to-point form is an indicator he will improve on his last two starts in hunter chases.Village Vic and Velvet Maker are not the forces they were, but Bubble O'Clock has taken well to life between the flags and is less exposed than most. Witness In Court and Tusa Eire face more demanding tasks than last time, whilst Bletchley Castle will take these a long way if cutting out the errors.
  1. Brave Jaq
  2. Llancillo Lord
  3. Net D'Ecosse
