Forecasts

Debuchet (6/4), Damalisque (11/4), Wingin A Prayer (3/1), Dalton Highway (4/1), Halsafari (8/1), R'evelyn Pleasure (8/1), Best Behavior (9/1), Campeador (10/1), Conquredalofeurope (14/1), Blast Of Koeman (22/1), Hurricane Darwin (28/1), Andratx (28/1), Crosshue Boy (33/1), Oscar Sam (80/1)

Verdict

Plenty with chances but DEBUCHET is taken to build on his encouraging debut second for Gavin Cromwell and gain an overdue first win over hurdles. Damalisque looks sure to have a say on the back of his good Naas second, while R'Evelyn Pleasure also needs considering after his recent win here.

  1. DEBUCHET (FR)
  2. DAMALISQUE (FR)
  3. R'EVELYN PLEASURE (IRE)
