Forecast

Beat The Judge (4/1), Scardura (9/2), Rouge Vif (5/1), On The Slopes (11/2), Ballywood (6/1), Dolos (12/1), Hatcher (14/1), Katpoli (14/1), Northern Beau (16/1), Movie Legend (25/1), Doitforthevillage (33/1), Western Miller (66/1), Azzuri (80/1)

Verdict

SCARDURA is a likeable young novice chaser who quickened clear in good style when opening his account over fences at Newton Abbot last month. You can expect to hear plenty more of him and he’s taken to land the spoils up in class. On The Slopes boasts some tremendous form and likely has more in the locker for Chris Gordon. The improving Beat The Judge also makes a fair bit of appeal.

  1. SCARDURA (IRE)
  2. ON THE SLOPES
  3. BEAT THE JUDGE (IRE)
