Betting

Forecast

Wilde About Oscar (4/9), Imperial Icon (6/1), Lord Of Kerak (13/2), Give Us A Swig (7/1), Rufio (16/1), Bucks Dream (33/1), Go On Brycey Lad (40/1), Everything Now (50/1), Brother Pat (100/1), Espinator (150/1), The Feckenham Fox (200/1), Orbit Of Iolite (300/1)

Verdict

Having shown plenty of ability in bumpers last season, WILDE ABOUT OSCAR will take some stopping if his jumping passes the test on this hurdles debut. Imperial Icon merits respect but he is clearly in need of a stiffer test and a bigger threat may be posed by point-winner Give Us A Swig. Newcomer Lord of Kerak fetched a princely sum as a 3-y-o and is very much one to note in the betting.

  1. WILDE ABOUT OSCAR (IRE)
  2. GIVE US A SWIG
  3. IMPERIAL ICON (IRE)
