Forecast

Thor De Cerisy (11/8), Rare Clouds (3/1), Lemon T (4/1), Baron De Midleton (5/1), Ballydonagh Boy (22/1), Arnica (40/1), Mannochmore (50/1), Saint Jude (50/1), Overcourt (66/1), Whispering Waters (80/1)

Verdict
A very winnable contest in which the course bumper winner Lemon T will surely prove competitive now introduced to hurdles (has the required pedigree) by Ruth Jefferson, while the returning Baron De Midleton merits close inspection on belated debut for the Brian Ellison/Phil and Julie Martin combination. Of those with more recent hurdles form, the bar isn't set too high by the likes of Rare Clouds and Arnica but a more logical evidence-based case can be made for the Michael Scudamore-trained THOR DE CERISY. On the whole, he has acquitted himself well when set a realistic task, including when runner-up at Uttoxeter on his penultimate start.
  1. Thor De Cerisy
  2. Lemon T
  3. Rare Clouds
