Forecast

High Up In The Air (4/1), Twycross Warrior (11/2), Imperial Elysian (6/1), State Vision (15/2), Sea Story (8/1), Dr Oakley (8/1), Wye Aye (11/1), The Distant Lady (12/1), Watar Allstar (20/1), Somekindofstar (20/1), Connect Four (28/1), Aheadfullofdreams (33/1), Dapa Lad (40/1), Happy News (40/1), Dont Tell The Wife (50/1), Sheeza Legend (100/1)

Verdict
HIGH UP IN THE AIR can put a disappointing effort last time out behind him to take this competitive looking hurdle contest. The selection had impressed when winning on his penultimate start and he can get back to winning ways here with Twycross Warrior, runner-up on his most recent outing capable of filling the same position in this contest. .Third place can go the way of Sea Story who has has the forecast ground to suit stepping up in distance.
  1. High Up In The Air
  2. Twycross Warrior
