Forecast

Ebony Jewel (11/10), Black Pirate (5/4), Archi's Affaire (5/1), Wee Goldie (9/1), Doyen Breed (12/1), Six One Nine (33/1), Cockle Bay (33/1), Flutter Down (50/1), Zealous (66/1), Breaking The Ice (100/1), Artic Mann (150/1), Mr Toastie (150/1), Raemoir (200/1), Flying Moon (200/1)

Verdict
A sizeable field. However, this surely rests between the penalised duo BLACK PIRATE and Ebony Jewel with a narrow preference for the James Ewart-trained runner on the assumption that he should progress from Wetherby. Returning to action from a lengthy absence there, he demonstrated that he retains all of his ability in putting six rivals to the sword. With experience of competing over hurdles, Doyen Breed gets the tentative nod for the third-placed spot ahead of the hurdling newcomers' Archi's Affaire and Wee Goldie.
  1. Black Pirate
  2. Ebony Jewel
  3. Doyen Breed
