Forecast

Rubytwo (11/10), C'Est Le Bonheur (9/4), Wee Goldie (6/1), Itsnotyouitsme (6/1), Nikgarde (7/1), Devour (12/1), Franks Fancy (18/1), Shantou Street (28/1), Calypso Storm (66/1), Taylormade Boy (80/1), The Great Georgie (100/1)

Verdict

ITSNOTYOUITSME posted some creditable efforts last season, including when runner-up to the useful Ribble Valley on hurdling debut, so he's given the nod to come out on top with this longer trip likely to be in his favour. C'est Le Bonheur displayed clear promise before departing at the last on his Perth hurdling debut and he rates the main threat, with Rubytwo and Devour also in the mix.
