Forecast

Dark Lochnagar (6/4), Tavus (2/1), Cawthorne Lad (11/2), Dehradun (11/1), Burnage Boy (16/1), Gordalan (18/1), Coup De Gold (20/1), Showshutai (200/1)

Verdict
Trainer Tim Easterby has been quoted as saying that he is aiming to get Cawthorne Lad into the juvenile handicap hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, so he will need another improved effort here and should go close. However, preference is just for the also-penalised TAVUS, who stays well, which could be vital given that the rail movements increase the distance of this by 168 yards, and will find this easier than his most recent, lofty engagement. Dark Lochnagar could be a danger to all if sharp enough on his hurdles debut, after a break, while Coup De Gold and Gordalan are respected.
