Forecast

Mutadaffeq (7/4), Quamino (2/1), Global Fert (4/1), Tiger Twenty Two (8/1), The Tartan Spartan (12/1), Accidental Rebel (12/1), Ashqar (12/1), Hardy Man (14/1), Chasing Abbey (16/1), Pump Road (16/1), Comporta (16/1), Sizing Malbay (25/1), Father Jed (25/1), Early Voice (33/1), Happy Lad (50/1), King's Song (66/1), Sang Tiger (66/1)

Verdict
HAPPY LAD needs to improve his jumping but has plenty of natural ability and he is given a tentative nod in this contest. He took a while to get the hang of things over hurdles - winning on his fifth attempt and looks fairly progressive. Mutadaffeq is a recent winner on the Flat. While his National Hunt form is not as good, with confidence up he could go close. The Tartan Spartan was a very useful Flat performer and is open to plenty of improvement over hurdles.
