Betting

Forecast

Mega Double (11/4), Chocolat Noir (9/2), Wolfcatcher (9/2), Juge Et Parti (5/1), Tsundoku (6/1), Native Fighter (13/2), Ormesher (11/1), Henry's Joy (14/1), Arthurs Secret (14/1), Too Much To Ask (14/1), Ballyfarsoon (20/1), Raashdy (20/1)

Verdict

The card ends with an interesting handicap hurdle that contains four course winners, two of them over C&D. The best of those looks to be Chocolat Noir who has won on her last two visits here (positively ridden both times) and she looked in fair form when returning at Southwell on the day jumping resumed in GB. She might not have things all her won way upfront (Ballyfarsoon and Juge Et Parti both like to pace set) and that could set things up nicely for the closers. Locally-trained NATIVE FIGHTER was given a recent Flat spin and that could have tuned up this progressive sort for this off what still looks to be a decent mark. Too Much To Ask and Raashdy are two others worth a market check.
  1. Native Fighter
  2. Chocolat Noir
  3. Too Much To Ask
