Forecasts

Top Man (5/4), Imperial Esprit (6/4), Mr Perfect (9/2), Call Off The Dogs (18/1), The Honeydipper (25/1)

Verdict

Top Man could get involved if able to bounce back from a disappointment last time, while Mr Perfect is a very interesting hurdles newcomer who merits respect. However, IMPERIAL ESPRIT represents a stable in good form and he is also nicely-bred. He is the suggestion to oblige on his first run in this sphere.
  1. Imperial Esprit
  2. Mr Perfect
  3. Top Man
