Forecast

Sending Love (10/11), Blazer's Mill (5/2), Mickey Buckman (11/2), Buckhorn George (10/1), Call Simon (16/1), How's The Cricket (40/1), Ardbruce (50/1), Legende de Minuit (66/1), Into The Woods (100/1), Sam Miguel (100/1), Alkademon (200/1), Thestopperdunne (250/1)

Verdict
MICKEY BUCKMAN has shown good form over hurdles so far and he is taken to register his first victory by taking this decent looking maiden event. Sending Love was returning from a long absence when placed on Rules debut last month and he can claim second place for top connections while Blazer's Mill, who finished a decent fourth on his hurdling debut can finish third on his first outing since wind surgery.
  1. Mickey Buckman
  2. Sending Love
  3. Blazer's Mill
