Forecast

Overcourt (4/6), Methodtothemadness (11/4), Paper Roses (5/1), Iona Lad (14/1)

Verdict
OVERCOURT has the potential to be better than his bare form and can land this if reproducing the form he showed last time out at Kelso. He is certainly going in the right direction and that performance rates some of the best in this contest. Paper Roses has the ability to win races despite never getting her head in front. Her main problem is inconsistency. If putting in one of her better performances than she holds a decent chance. Methodtothemadness has been struggling of late though he has some talent and probably deserves another chance to follow up on his novice hurdle success at Carlisle in October.
