Forecast

Fortescue (7/2), Samburu Shujaa (7/2), Hugo 'n Taz (4/1), Trio For Rio (9/2), Quick Wave (5/1), Virginia Chick (7/1)

Verdict
A tricky little race to solve and you can make a case for most of them. Samburu Shujaa has the potential to take the race apart from this mark if he can get his jumping together, and Hugo 'n Taz was well fancied to land a regional National on his first start for the yard before duly obliging. Both look dangers to FORTESCUE, who was always going to need time given his size but he's really getting the hang of things now and can score again before the handicapper starts to catch up with him. Virginia Chick isn't easy to catch right but the ability is there if he is on a going day.
  1. Fortescue
  2. Samburu Shujaa
  3. Hugo 'n Taz
