Forecast

Nickolson (1/1), Trincomalee (2/1), The Cob (7/2), Vorashann (16/1), Hooligan (25/1), Shareef Star (25/1), Blood Eagle (25/1), Leading Knight (50/1), Manintheshadows (80/1), Celtic Tara (100/1), Llanbeau (100/1), Eyes Up (125/1), Rollo (125/1), Checkinforsquirels (150/1)

Verdict
Previous winners Nickolson and Trincomalee are feared – in that order – despite the penalties they have to carry but THE COB ran into a decent sort on his hurdling bow when finishing second at Uttoxeter in January and the winner has since shaped well in the Grade 2 Premier Novices' Hurdle. Ben Pauling's team have found some form lately and Nico De Boinville's can make the most of the 6lb he receives from those previous winners. Flat recruits Shareef Star and Blood Eagle command a look while Vorashann finds an easier challenge than in the Adonis last time.
  1. The Cob
