Forecast

Dubai Days (9/4), My Strong Man (7/2), Kauto D'Amour (5/1), Ballydonagh Boy (5/1), Stonific (8/1), Bestiarius (12/1), Western Lass (14/1), Paper Roses (20/1), Juals Spirit (22/1), Emissaire (28/1)

Verdict

DUBAI DAYS is taken to make a winning handicap debut by taking this competitive looking novices' handicap hurdle. The selection has the forecast going to suit and he can improve on trainer Nick Alexander's 22% strike-rate (2/9) in the last two weeks with a success in this race. Top weight Stonific is another making his handicap debut and he can finish runner-up while third place can go to Kauto D'Amour who is dropping in distance having disappointed on his most recent start.
  1. Dubai Days
  2. Stonific
  3. Kauto D'Amour
