Forecast

Tango Boy (5/6), Presence Of Mind (5/4), Word Has It (10/1), Alph (28/1), Strategic (100/1), Beyondtheflame (125/1)

Verdict
PRESENCE OF MIND showed good form in bumpers and he can break his maiden at the first time of asking over hurdles by taking this novices' hurdle event. The selection looks capable of getting the better of Tango Boy who ran well on hurdling debut in the autumn while third place can go to Word Has It who showed ability prior to falling in a bumper earlier this season.
  1. Presence Of Mind
  2. Tango Boy
  3. Word Has It
