Forecast

Linger (9/4), Convara (7/2), Dumhach Thra (8/1), Morning Skye (12/1), Dandjira (12/1), Callthebarman (12/1), Whatsinthecorner (14/1), Cats For Cash (14/1), Castlehume (14/1), Al Sakb (14/1), Monkeylou (14/1), De Mazzaro (16/1), Staged Engagement (16/1), Volatile Lady (18/1), Roachdale House (20/1), Empire Burleque (20/1), Sticky Situation (25/1), Lady In Lavender (33/1), Water Sprite (33/1), The Irregular (33/1), Act In Time (40/1), Magic Sea (50/1), Colour Me In (66/1)

Verdict

Obviously in such a big field there are a host of interesting propositions but none more so than LINGER who has been in form on the level and now returns to hurdling as a potentially seriously well treated horse. Cats For Cash is an interesting handicap debutant for all-conquering connections and Whatsinthecorner also appears likely to make his presence felt back over hurdles.
