Forecasts

Layerthorpe (13/8), We'llcwhathappens (5/1), Sign Of War (5/1), Tactical Manoeuvre (7/1), Viking Ruby (8/1), The Boola Bee (11/1), Eric The Third (12/1), Whatsthecraicjack (14/1), Akkapenko (14/1), Galactic Power (16/1), Scaramucci (20/1), Mr Magill (20/1), Massini's Dream (25/1)

Verdict

MASSINI'S DREAM showed ability in novice hurdles last season and she can make a winning return from an absence to defy top weight in the concluding staying handicap hurdle. Viking Ruby still held claims when unseating at the last on her most recent outing and she can claim second spot ahead of Layerthorpe who has won his last two starts.
  1. Massini's Dream
