Forecast

Coconut Splash (4/6), Giovanni Change (7/2), Bean In Trouble (4/1), Fazayte (16/1), No Regrets (20/1), Yorvik (25/1), Small Present (33/1), Chelsea's Boy (50/1), Machiavelli (50/1), Caroline's Quest (100/1), Shady Character (100/1), Aheadfullofdreams (125/1), Simul Amicis (150/1), Sweetest Smile (200/1)

Verdict
This looks like a good opportunity for the promising COCONUT SPLASH to gain a first career victory over hurdles and get back on track following his final-flight fall in a hot contest at Newbury when last seen. He held smart form in his soles hurdles start prior to that, and should have no problems in this weaker event. After posting an encouraging first run over obstacles when third to the potentially above-average Black Pirate over C&D recently, Giovanni Change should be bang there once more. Similar comments apply to No Regrets who also has previous hurdle experience to his name, and should be kept in mind once sent handicapping after this.
  1. Coconut Splash
  2. Giovanni Change
  3. No Regrets
