Forecast

Hurricane Harvey (5/6), Hometown Boy (5/2), Corrany (7/1), Waitonit (10/1), Commit Or Quit (14/1), Clondaw Pretender (16/1), Butler's Brief (50/1), Happy News (50/1), Seymour Sox (100/1), Black Kalarosa (100/1), Fun De Nuit (100/1), Fenrir Binding (100/1)

Verdict
Two of these posted very solid efforts on their hurdling debuts last time with HURRICANE HARVEY producing the most taking of those two performances, overcoming some trouble three out to finish a worthy second, this trip will play to his strengths with his stable remaining in red-hot form. He will face a worthy opponent in Hometown Boy whose debut effort over hurdles was a valiant one with Corrany and Clondaw Pretender having also turned some fair efforts so far with better expected. Commit Or Quit is another to note on his hurdling debut having made an encouraging start in an Ascot bumper whilst it’s far too soon to write off Waitonit after his flop at Worcester now he switches to hurdles.
  1. Hurricane Harvey
  2. Commit Or Quit
  3. Hometown Boy
