Forecast

Filou Des Issards (11/8), Dante's View (5/2), Shantou Master (6/1), Eye Of An Eagle (6/1), Ididitforyoooo (12/1), Jumping Cats (16/1), Ben Buie (22/1), If Karl's Berg Did (25/1), Myspacenotyours (40/1), Flying Focus (66/1), Pour Une Raison (80/1), Dark Storm (150/1), Miniature Daffodil (300/1)

Verdict

FILOU DES ISSARDS shaped nicely when placed twice at Taunton last winter and this looks a nice opening for him. Dante's View made a fairly encouraging start to his hurdling career at Southwell recently and can provide the chief threat ahead of last autumn's Wincanton fourth Eye of An Eagle.

  2. DANTE'S VIEW (IRE)
  3. EYE OF AN EAGLE (FR)
