Forecasts

Captain Tom Cat (5/6), Hollywoodien (9/4), Militarian (6/1), Solar Impulse (13/2), Isaac Wonder (8/1), Maypole Class (12/1), Ballywood (14/1), Empire De Maulde (16/1), Mr Whipped (33/1)

Verdict

Plenty of these arrive with question marks against them so it could be worth siding with CAPTAIN TOM CAT to make a winning start over fences given he arrives in excellent form over hurdles and is in the excellent hands of Dr Richard Newland. Hollywoodien is feared most on the back of his Hereford second with Empire de Maulde also worth considering with his Kelso fourth under his belt.

  1. CAPTAIN TOM CAT (IRE)
  2. HOLLYWOODIEN (FR)
  3. EMPIRE DE MAULDE (FR)
