Forecast

Ebony Jewel (11/10), Taking Flight (5/1), Order Of Thistle (13/2), Witness Protection (8/1), Corrieben Reiver (10/1), Ballydonagh Boy (16/1), Largy Perk (25/1), Portstorm (25/1), Wilhelm Vonvenster (33/1), Walkin In The Rain (50/1), Old Jewry (50/1), Elu Secret (66/1), Scullys Forge (80/1), Mannochmore (100/1), Farran Dancer (125/1), Schiehallion Ridge (150/1)

Verdict
Interesting novice hurdle though little form to go on as plenty of these are making the switch from bumpers. The market should prove useful and narrow preference goes to EBONY JEWEL who arguably has shown the best form in that discipline. Order Of Thistle won nicely at Sedgefield, and along with Witness Protection makes most appeal.
  1. Ebony Jewel
  2. Order Of Thistle
  3. Witness Protection
