Forecasts

Istimraar (4/1), Goldencard (11/2), The Character (11/2), Outcrop (6/1), Royal Reserve (6/1), Ekayburg (7/1), Phoebus Lescribaa (7/1), Never A Word (9/1), Bempton Cliffs (9/1), Bobndave (12/1), Metatrons Cube (14/1), Biscay Bay (16/1), The Herds Garden (20/1), Prince Khurram (25/1), Rathbride Prince (25/1), Fool To Cry (33/1), Poor Duke (66/1)

Verdict

ISTIMRAAR hails from a top yard and he can register a sixth career success by taking this highly competitive handicap hurdle. The selection is returning from a short break and he can see off his rivals here with The Character, a winner here last time out capable of finishing runner-up ahead of Outcrop who has been running well in defeat in recent starts.
  1. Istimraar
  2. The Character
  3. Outcrop
