Forecast

Mandalayan (15/8), Quart De Garde (3/1), Falberto (11/2), Apple Rock (8/1), Carys' Commodity (17/2), Echo Du Large (10/1), The Blame Game (10/1), Cool Country (14/1), Alph (33/1), Chelsea's Boy (66/1), Harmattan (100/1), Miladygrace (150/1)

Verdict
The race that FALBERTO ran at Chepstow on his hurdling debut when chasing home a subsequent winner over 2m if repeated would be good enough to take this contest with the step up in trip likely to suit. A shoddy round of jumping over C&D cost Quart De Garde a debut win in this country on his first run for this yard, a slicker round of jumping will see him go close this time. Mandalayan has disappointed since a promising debut over hurdles but the application of a tongue-tie and a step up in trip may produce a rejuvenated performance. Apple Rock and Cool Country are two others to consider in an interesting event.
