Forecast

Buzz (1/2), Stormy Flight (5/1), Chez Hans (11/2), Galahad Quest (8/1), Astrologist (12/1), Horatio Star (20/1), Percy Pops (25/1), Passing Shadow (100/1), The Honeydipper (100/1), Mr Minerals (200/1), Ioweu (200/1)

Verdict
BUZZ makes a lot of appeal on his first run over hurdles for this leading yard. He was successful on four occasions on the Flat and he can add to his tally on his opening National Hunt appearance. Astrologist didn't quite have the success he would have been expected to have on the Flat given his profile but a much better run may come over hurdles, while Chez Hans should produce more than he has so far in the UK to finish in the frame in this maiden hurdle.
  1. Buzz
  2. Astrologist
  3. Chez Hans
