Forecasts

Glory And Honour (9/4), Royal Pretender (9/2), Switch Hitter (5/1), One For You (11/2), Winged Isle (6/1), Glen Mooar (13/2), Aquila Sky (17/2), Took The Lot (14/1), Presentedwithwings (20/1)

Verdict

AQUILA SKY got stuck in the mud last time and is perhaps worth another chance as his Doncaster third prior to that has worked out well. There's surely more to come from recent jumpers bumper winner Glory And Honour over hurdles and he looks next best ahead of One For You and Switch Hitter in an interesting contest.
