Betting

Forecast

Darver Star (11/10), Felix Desjy (13/8), Benruben (11/1), A Wave Of The Sea (16/1), Pakens Rock (18/1), Sizing Pottsie (20/1), Emily Moon (28/1)

Verdict

DARVER STAR was comfortably the best of this field over hurdles and, having taken well to chasing when scoring at this course in October, he's likely to go in again despite formidable opposition from the talented Felix Desjy, who also made a flawless start to his career over fences. Benruben is the pick of the remainder.

  1. DARVER STAR (IRE)
  2. FELIX DESJY (FR)
  3. BENRUBEN (IRE)
