Forecasts

Verdict

CLEAR WHITE LIGHT won easily on hurdles debut over C&D earlier this month and is taken to follow-up. He can see off the challenge of fellow C&D winner Fringill Dike, who opened his hurdles account here at the third attempt. Retrospect completes the shortlist having his first start over hurdles for Dr Richard Newland with Brian Hughes on board.

  1. CLEAR WHITE LIGHT
  2. FRINGILL DIKE (IRE)
  3. RETROSPECT (IRE)
