Forecast

Theatre World (7/2), Bay Ambition (5/1), Cherif De L'Isle (7/1), Oh'herewego (8/1), The Church Gate (9/1), Blue Empyrean (9/1), Broomfield's Oscar (10/1), Star Adventure (10/1), Electricitywork (14/1), Flemenstorm (14/1), The Dabbler (16/1), Rightdownthemiddle (16/1), Gagas Horse (16/1), Pistol Shoot (20/1), King Alex (25/1), Castello Sforza (25/1), Castle Canny (25/1), Famous Day (33/1)

Verdict
The Matthew Smith-trained THE CHURCH GATE can continue his excellent form over hurdles by landing the opener. The son of Golden Tornado was in fine form over hurdles winning his last two in big fields around this time last year and can hold off the attentions of a rejuvenated Rightdownthemiddle on his second start for trainer Gordon Elliott. The tough and genuine C&D winner Theatre World can compete with Electricitywork for remaining prize money. The Gavin Cromwell-trained Bay Ambition should not be underestimated following on handicap debut while Broomfield's Oscar can go well at a price.
  1. The Church Gate

  3. Electricitywork
