Forecasts

Quartz Du Rheu (2/9), Lets Go Again (7/1), Stronghold (9/1), Cocohulababy (11/1), Zayriyan (12/1), Be My Hero (33/1), Mind Your Step (33/1), Marmalade N Toast (40/1), Hapydaze (40/1), King Con (66/1), Cocoroco (100/1), Clody Valley (100/1), Amber Run (100/1), Itsdacraic (100/1)

Verdict

It seems wise to stick with those who have at least some experience on their side. Despite producing a lesser effort on the flat lately, Cocohulababy did well to finish fourth on hurdling debut behind runners who had the benefit of experience. He is greatly respected, as is Lets Go Again who seems to be improving with racing and displayed obvious improvement from his hurdles debut when just failing to make the frame at Cork last time. However, clear preference is for QUARTZ DU RHEU who runs in the famous green and gold of JP McManus and looks an exciting recruit from France for powerful connections. He can make the perfect stable debut before moving onto bigger things.
  1. Quartz Du Rheu
  2. Lets Go Again
  3. Cocohulababy
