Forecast

Thebannerkingrebel (5/4), Proschema (5/2), Old Jeroboam (5/2), Multellie (13/2), Malystic (10/1), Armandihan (14/1), Cheddleton (25/1), Durouyn (33/1), Nye Bevan (50/1), Briardale (66/1), Miss Tootsy (66/1), Hows Johnny (66/1), Scorchin (100/1), Mr Young (100/1)

Verdict
A tricky puzzle to solve but there was a lot to like about the way OLD JEROBOAM won on hurdles debut last time out and he may be capable of building on that here. Thebannerkingrebel, Armandihan, Multellie all have hurdle wins to their name already and there's little to split those three on paper. Proschema could be the main danger if he can transfer all his Flat ability to this sphere for a yard with a fantastic strike-rate at this venue.
  1. Old Jeroboam
  2. Proschema
  3. Thebannerkingrebel
