Betting

Forecast

Thomas Macdonagh (11/8), No Regrets (5/2), Brigade of Guards (10/3), All Hail Caesar (4/1), Teescomponentstrig (5/1), Destiny Is All (40/1), Dorothy's Flame (50/1), Here In The Dark (50/1)

Verdict

Any evidence of sustained market support would offer encouragement with regards the chances of the hurdling newcomer No Regrets, and a race of this nature should definitely fall his way sooner or later. However, with Tim Vaughan and Jamie Snowden sending runners North, a lack of experience may just count against the Nicky Richards-trained runner. Thomas Macdonagh boasts a solid level of form in bumpers (including against the promising Lossiemouth) but with more experience of obstacles, the 118-rated BRIGADE OF GUARDS receives the tentative nod.
