Forecasts

Flooring Porter (10/3), Klassical Dream (5/1), Beacon Edge (5/1), Ronald Pump (17/2), Saldier (10/1), Fury Road (11/1), French Dynamite (12/1), The Storyteller (14/1), James Du Berlais (16/1), Mrs Milner (16/1), Sole Pretender (18/1), Heaven Help Us (25/1), Bacardys (50/1), Diol Ker (66/1), Agrapart (150/1)

Verdict

FLOORING PORTER has improved out of all recognition, winning his first handicap from a mark of just 105 and now potentially looking the dominant staying hurdler after his impressive all-the-way success in the Stayers' Hurdle at Cheltenham. Beacon Edge was an excellent fourth behind the selection at the Festival on his first attempt at this trip and rates the main threat ahead of Ronald Pump.
