Forecast

Kilfenora (9/4), Darasso (5/2), Penhill (3/1), Magic Of Light (3/1), Tiger Roll (9/1), Bachasson (11/1), Killultagh Vic (12/1), Cracking Smart (16/1), Brace Yourself (33/1), Fine Rightly (66/1)

Verdict
MAGIC OF LIGHT has the benefit of good recent form and a fitness edge on some of her rivals here and is taken to land this fascinating hurdles contest. She has done little wrong in her last two starts and while this step back in trip is not to her advantage it may not stop her winning. All eyes will be on Tiger Roll in the contest he won last season. If fit enough, his trainer could be in line to collect his fourth consecutive success in this race. Darasso will be much sharper for a recent run at Haydock and if putting his best foot forward then he holds every chance.
