Betting

Forecast

Ozzy Thomas (4/5), Full Irish (5/2), The Tourard Man (4/1), Buck Dancing (16/1), Chapelier (40/1)

Verdict
BUCK DANCING has to concede plenty of weight all round in the small field contest but he may prove too strong for his rivals who lack a little bit of quality. The eleven-year-old is a fantastic performer in point-to-points but has also showed ability under rules and won his first race recently at Perth. Few of the other make much appeal though it will be interesting to see how Ozzy Thomas performs making his first start in a steeplechase for a long while. Some of his old form reads well.
  1. Buck Dancing
  2. Ozzy Thomas
  3. The Tourard Man
