Forecast

Celtic Dancer (5/1), Ard Na Carraig (5/1), Still Alive (5/1), Cloak Of Darkness (7/1), Jessamine (10/1), Desertmore Dreamer (10/1), Ainmisfearr (11/1), Liclash (12/1), Meet The Man (16/1), Naturally Blond (16/1), Hey Groovy (18/1), My Lovely Boy (25/1), Try Dollys Sister (25/1), Fly De Megaudais (25/1), Shedding (50/1)

Verdict
STILL ALIVE looks capable of putting a disappointing Flat effort behind him to take this competitive looking handicap hurdle. The selection was placed on his most recent jumps start and with forecast ground conditions in his favour he can get the better of Celtic Dancer who was a winner here in the spring while third place can go to Hey Groovy who is making her return from a break.
  1. Still Alive
  2. Celtic Dancer
  3. Hey Groovy
