Forecast

Fizzlestix (3/1), Mole Trap (10/3), Heavenly Promise (5/1), Bean Liath (11/2), Sergeant Brody (8/1), Miss Molinari (10/1), Levasseur (14/1), Parlour Maid (16/1), Avithos (16/1)

Verdict
A divided Class 5 handicap hurdle in which plenty enter the reckoning. Miss Molinari is lightly raced and closely matched with the feasibly handicapped Fizzlestix on the basis of recent Plumpton form. Meanwhile, Heavenly Promise seeks to exploit a favourable hurdles mark after completing the hat-trick over fences at Ffos Las (3m) during the autumn. However, on such a demanding racing surface it's worth sticking with the surprising Hereford winner MOLE TRAP. She showed a most willing attitude at odds of 22-1, and despite a subsequent 5lb weights rise could well have more too offer in this discipline.
  1. Mole Trap
  2. Fizzlestix
  3. Heavenly Promise
