Betting

Forecast

Shan Blue (5/4), Champagne Well (15/8), One Night In Milan (8/1), Repetitio (10/1), Sirwilliamwallace (16/1), Howling Milan (16/1), General Custard (25/1), Rob The Getaway (50/1)

Verdict

An intriguing race with three potentially smart novices locking horns, namely CHAMPAGNE WELL, One Night In Milan and Shan Blue. There's little to choose between the trio judged on hurdling exploits but if there's one who stands out as a proper chasing type, it's Champagne Well. The 4-y-o Repetitio is fit from the Flat and also enters calculations given his handy weight allowance.

  1. CHAMPAGNE WELL (IRE)
  2. ONE NIGHT IN MILAN (IRE)
  3. SHAN BLUE (IRE)
