Forecasts

War Creation (15/8), I'm A Game Changer (2/1), Derrynane (5/2), Red Square Revival (10/1), Grand Coureur (25/1), Ben Arthur (33/1), Generous Day (33/1), Shininstar (66/1), Quarry Lami (66/1), Sulamani The Late (100/1), Triopas (100/1), Sidsteel (200/1)

Verdict

A race in which few can be expected to make their mark. I'm A Game Changer is improving with experience, but may be found wanting against stronger rivals, whilst Red Square Revival needs to leave a disappointing hurdles debut at Ayr well behind him, but yet may be capable of doing so back on this flatter track. Derrynane would be an obvious contender on his hurdles debut, but this is best left to the mare WAR CREATION, on her hurdles debut for new connections. She receives weight from all of her rivals and sports the most promising profile on paper. 1. War Creation 2. Derrynane 3. Red Square Revival
