Forecasts

Eden Du Houx (8/11), I K Brunel (13/8), In Rem (12/1), Champs Inblue (16/1), Robins Field (25/1), Certainly Red (25/1), Supreme Escape (33/1), One For Dunstan (33/1), Moromac (33/1), Tarks Hill (50/1), Oscarsman (66/1), Vital Sign (66/1), Glengar (66/1), Hi There Silver (100/1)

Verdict

This looks likely to be a match between Eden Du Houx, a Listed bumper winner making his hurdles debut, and I K BRUNEL, who already looks useful in this sphere, and the latter's experience earns him the vote today. In Rem, and to a lesser extent Robins Field also make some appeal for minor honours.
  1. I K Brunel
  2. Eden Du Houx
  3. In Rem
