Verdict

This looks to represent a good opportunity for BHALOO to build on a promising opening run over hurdles at Kempton. Tommie Gun shaped quite well when runner-up in a Newbury bumper last month and is preferred for the forecast spot to Colonel Whizz, who may not be ideally suited by the return to 2m.

  1. BHALOO (IRE)
  2. TOMMIE GUN (IRE)
