Betting

Forecast

Loughan (5/4), Imperial Icon (7/2), K'chou Du Pecos Aa (4/1), Golden Glory (12/1), No Quarter Asked (16/1), Little Brian (25/1), Lady Sally (25/1), The Furrows End (25/1), Bay Of Intrigue (33/1), Arvico's Light (50/1), Rollo (50/1), Lightonthewing (100/1), Bear Spray (100/1)

Verdict
A race severely lacking in depth looks rather at the mercy of LOUGHAN who is easily the most appealing of the Skelton trio. Trevor Hemmings' five-year-old ran well in his only bumper and better still on hurdles debut at Huntingdon. The only real danger looks to be well-bred Imperial Icon in the Imperial Commander colours with his lone bumper run one of great promise. Skelton's second string Bear Spray may prove best of the rest.
