Forecast

Santani (2/5), Ventura Dragon (11/4), Twist (7/2), Graceful James (6/1), Made For You (8/1), Dorette (16/1), Feel The Pinch (20/1), Just Marvin (50/1), Royal Road (66/1), Dubai Outlaw (150/1)

Verdict
Despite having a penalty to cope with the best hurdling form is brought to the table by SANTANI who after winning on his debut has come across two useful sorts since only narrowly getting beaten last time; his experience should count for plenty in this. Twist hasn’t quite clicked over hurdles yet but that’s surely only a matter of time if he settles better especially as he now has headgear on for the first time that should help him in that sphere. Ventura Dragon may well be the main danger though his hurdles debut reading well especially as he allowed the winner to get first run on him. Graceful James and Dorette would be two others that have a chance of getting involved.
