Forecast

Mamoo (10/3), Fresh New Dawn (4/1), Scottish Accent (7/1), Strike West (8/1), Skipthescales (8/1), Transpennine Star (8/1), Final Fling (12/1), Brotherly Company (12/1), Craig Star (14/1), King Of Fashion (20/1)

Verdict
FRESH NEW DAWN hails from a yard with a 25% strike-rate (4/16) in the last two weeks and following a good third last time out he can register his second hurdles success on his first attempt at this distance. The selection has run well on soft ground in the past and he can get the better of Strike West who was narrowly beaten on his penultimate start while third place can go to Mamoo who has been in great form at this venue in recent times.
  1. Fresh New Dawn
  2. Strike West
  3. Mamoo
