Forecast

Padleyourowncanoe (11/4), Master Burbidge (3/1), Yamato (3/1), Mouriyani (7/2), Star Of Athena (4/1), Building Bridges (6/1), Cohesion (6/1), Seaport (9/1), Jamacho (28/1), Dovils Date (50/1), Storm Girl (250/1)

Verdict
Building Bridges looks interesting based on his Irish form and a hurdling victory for his new yard. Stamina issues are a concern for him whereas Master Burbidge needs to prove himself in this grade. Yamato was heavily eased when scoring here in October but a 12lb rise in the weights is still asking a lot. Star Of Athena runs well here and is better weighted than recently but preference is for MOURIYANI. Tom Ward's charge is 2-4 on AW tracks and stayed on well to score here on Sunday over 1m6f. He escapes a penalty and given the likelihood of better to come he is hard to oppose.
  1. Mouriyani
  2. Star Of Athena
  3. Building Bridges
