Forecasts

Cabernet D'Alene (11/10), With Pleasure (15/8), Faction (6/1), Oliver's Island (10/1), Art Looker (33/1)

Verdict

It will take little to win this but there are few in this to enthuse over. Faction was soundly beaten on his hurdling debut but should improve for the run. Oliver's Island and Art Looker appear moderate. Cabernet D'alene has shown enough to be capable of landing this but his last few runs have made him look a lot worse than his official rating indicates. WITH PLEASURE has winning Flat form and should give a better account this evening. This will be the first time he has had the trip and ground he needs over hurdles. The rider has a good record for the yard and that may be enough to make a difference in a race as poor as this.
