Forecast

Shan Blue (11/8), Redford Road (9/2), I'm Wiser Now (11/2), Highway Girl (7/1), Kerrkenny Gold (8/1), Le Grand Fromage (17/2), Forewarning (10/1), Xcitations (50/1), Dhowin (50/1), Princess Nearco (66/1), Kauto D'Amour (100/1), Dont Tell The Wife (100/1), Castle On A Cloud (150/1), Donald Dux (200/1), Stormy Reception (250/1)

Verdict

A very interesting novices' hurdle to bring down the curtain on the day. Several of them look likely to prove capable of winning races in this discipline, and those include Dhowin, Forewarning, Le Grand Fromage, Kerrkenny Gold and Shan Blue. I'm Wiser Now clearly has some ability, but he appeared a bit reluctant when the chips were down last time, so may prove a risky proposition. Xcitations and Highway Girl can't be ruled out, but the suggestion is REDFORD ROAD, who would be one of the better runners in this field on bumper form and represents a trainer who has won two of the last eight runnings of this race.
  1. Redford Road
  2. Le Grand Fromage
  3. Shan Blue
