Forecast

It's Probably Me (5/4), Molly Ollys Wishes (13/8), Leeswood Lily (7/1), Meep Meep (17/2), Singapore Saga (10/1), Inawhilecrocodile (12/1), Wild Polly (25/1), A New Siege (33/1), Mighty Elsa (150/1), Akilaya (200/1)

Verdict
Rather like the earlier novices’ hurdle on the card there look to be two main players with the Warwick winner Molly Ollys Wishes looking to maintain her superiority over the second IT’S PROBABLY ME. The penalty that Dan Skelton’s charge carries may just tilt the decision in the direction of the suggestion especially as that one was hampered by a slowly run race. Those two stand out but there are one or two to watch out for in the future especially once they get a handicap mark in the shape of Inawhilecrocodile and Singapore Saga along with A New Siege who could well outrun her odds.
  1. It's Probably Me
  2. Molly Ollys Wishes
  3. Inawhilecrocodile
