Miss Heritage (15/8), Enlighten (15/2), Great Hall (8/1), The Newest One (8/1), Itsonlyrocknroll (8/1), Bardd (8/1), Ulysses (10/1), Brambledown (10/1), Big Nick (12/1), Moonlit Sea (12/1), Fukuto (14/1), Nocte Volatus (16/1), Celestial Magic (20/1), Incredible Dream (33/1), Shady Character (40/1), Royal Concorde (50/1)

Verdict
Top weight THE NEWEST ONE finished third in a decent looking novice event last time out and he is taken to make a winning handicap debut by defying top weight in this big field handicap hurdle. The selection can get the better of Bardd who ran well when finishing runner-up on his most recent start while third place can go to Miss Heritage who was placed on handicap debut in a mares only race over this C&D last time out.
  1. The Newest One
  2. Bardd
  3. Miss Heritage
