Forecast

Ice Pyramid (1/2), Lopes Dancer (9/2), Groveman (7/1), Sioux Frontier (12/1), Iconic Belle (14/1), Dieu Benisse (50/1), Lady Camelot (66/1)

Verdict
Ice Pyramid hacked up on his C&D handicap debut two starts ago before being narrowly denied shortly afterwards at Lingfield. A combination of just an eight day gap and different type of track there may not have suited, however things will be harder with his full 10lb rise now having kicked in. GROVEMAN has been outclassed on his last two hurdles runs but ran a blinder when last seen on the Flat at Carlisle and this contest is easier again and is the pick to land the spoils. Lopes Dancer has a good record here and shouldn't be far away.
  1. Groveman
  2. Ice Pyramid
  3. Lopes Dancer
