Forecast

Nineohtwooneoh (1/1), A Ladies Milan (7/1), Chosen Flame (8/1), Titus Bolt (8/1), Starplex (9/1), Trongate (12/1), Goldslinger (16/1), On We Go (18/1), Old Jewry (20/1), Raemoir (25/1), Le Gavroche (33/1), Danced Every Dance (33/1), Whispering Waters (40/1), Barfly (40/1), Abouttimeyoutoldme (66/1)

Verdict
The consistent TITUS BOLT can gain reward for a string of placed efforts by taking this competitive handicap hurdle. Nineohtwooneoh showed good form when placed on handicap debut last time out and he can claim second spot for top connections while third place can go the way of Le Gavroche who showed promise on his return from an absence last time out.
  1. Titus Bolt
  2. Nineohtwooneoh
  3. Le Gavroche
