Forecast

Bapaume (5/4), Press Conference (7/2), School Boy Hours (11/2), Star Max (6/1), Caravation (12/1), Spyglass Hill (14/1), Monkshood (16/1), Boston Spray (25/1), Out Of The Loop (33/1), Monotype (33/1), Cartwright (33/1), Bridge Native (50/1), Krisquin (50/1), Best Behavior (66/1), Countess Cathleen (66/1), Castle Oliver (66/1), Ask Mary (80/1), I'm Not Alone (100/1), West Is Best (100/1)

Verdict
Having finished seventh beaten 26L BAPAUME was obviously disappointing first time over fences but he jumped well enough before clearly tiring so this 158-rated Grade One winner is worth another go for the champion trainer in an interesting contest. None of Bapaume's rivals were comparable hurdlers but School Boy Hours who ran so well behind two Grade One winners and Star Max who has twice met Grade One performers both have better form at this early stage over fences.
  1. Bapaume
  2. School Boy Hours
  3. Star Max
