Forecasts

Royal Thief (11/10), Shanwalla (5/2), Santana Plessis (6/1), Ballymacaw (8/1), Four Country Roads (11/1), Amerijano (20/1), Hell On Earth (25/1), Oscar Montel (40/1), Silver Sedge (50/1), Ruler Of Dubai (100/1), Pivotal Pursuit (100/1)

Verdict

It took him a while to get on the board in bumpers but SANTANA PLESSIS did it eventually when tackling 2m4f at Kilbeggan in July and this further examination of stamina looks a positive for him on his hurdling debut for a prolific trainer/jockey combination. Shanwalla, Royal Thief and Amerijano are also considered while Four Country Roads showed more in a bumper at Cork recently and gets the chance to build on that now back over hurdles.
  1. Santana Plessis
  2. Shanwalla
  3. Amerijano
