Forecast

Sign Of War (11/4), Pray For A Rainbow (11/2), Lammturner (6/1), Kilcrea Bridge (7/1), Strike West (8/1), Georgian Firebird (9/1), On We Go (11/1), Letemgo (16/1), Samtu (20/1), Oliver's Island (20/1), Simply Lucky (20/1), Midnight Mustang (33/1), Agent Louise (66/1), Red Star Dancer (100/1)

Verdict
SIGN OF WAR made a winning chase debut last time out and he can register his second career success by making a winning return to hurdling in this staying handicap hurdle. The selection looks capable of getting the better of top weight Strike West who was narrowly beaten at Haydock on his most recent start while Pray For A Rainbow who has a promising conditional jockey in the saddle can take third.
  1. Sign Of War
  2. Strike West
  3. Pray For A Rainbow
