Forecast

Higgs (8/11), Frightened Rabbit (5/1), Sleepy Haven (9/1), Ask Paddington (12/1), Black Key (14/1), Dubh Des Champs (14/1), Bestiarius (16/1), Attention Seaker (28/1), Mahler Supreme (50/1)

Verdict
This doesn’t look as deep or competitive as the first division with Higgs sure to attract attention once again but although it’s dangerous to oppose this type for the Newland yard he didn’t really impress at Exeter and this may come a little too soon. FRIGHTENED RABBIT is preferred on the back of his good Flat form as he returns to hurdles for the first time since his 10L Cartmel romp in July, he looks capable of coping with this increased mark. Not many of the others have sound credentials although support for Dubh Des Champs would be of interest given his Doncaster win. Black Key and Ask Paddington are the most appealing of the remainder.
  1. Frightened Rabbit
  2. Higgs
  3. Dubh Des Champs
