Forecasts

Friary Land (9/4), Ring The Moon (10/3), Bignorm (6/1), Joey Steel (6/1), Gallic Geordie (7/1), Watar Allstar (11/1), Ardbruce (16/1), Treacys Jim (50/1), Just In A Muddle (50/1)

Verdict

Lots of these with chasing experience have questions to answer so FRIARY LAND, who has shown progressive hurdling form since joining Olly Murphy, is fancied to make a winning start over fences. Bignorm arrives on the back of a fine third at Southwell so is rated next best, although Watar Allstar is weighted to have a say too if on song.

  1. FRIARY LAND
  2. BIGNORM (IRE)
