Forecasts

Ferny Hollow (4/11), Frontal Assault (9/2), On Eagles Wings (6/1), Bombay Blue (10/1), Baptism Of Fire (14/1), Broomfields Jeremy (33/1), It Could Be You (40/1), Barrow Bounty (66/1), Rent Day Blues (66/1), Ruhm Und Ehre (80/1), Durity (100/1)

Verdict

A really hot bumper this with the majority of the top yards involved. Cheveley Park have quickly gained a reputation for having bumper horses of the highest calibre and although expensive purchase FERNY HOLLOW has twice found one too good both were very useful prospects in their own right so this looks his time to strike. As ever Gordon Elliott offers Willie Mullins the biggest threat with Thurles second Frontal Assault and Elliott has won this race in each of the last three seasons. This isn't a two-horse race by any means however with Bombay Blue, Baptism Of Fire and On Eagles Wings all horses with potential.
  1. Ferny Hollow
  2. Frontal Assault
  3. Bombay Blue
