Forecasts

Le Richebourg (15/8), Easy Gold (9/4), Brontide (9/2), Denham Sound (5/1), Silver Star (7/1), Unicorn (12/1), Turbine (14/1), High School Days (16/1), The Moore Factor (25/1), Bard Of Armagh (40/1), Sunday At Augusta (40/1), Lily Trotter (50/1), Mr Jacaranda (50/1), Katbart (66/1), Scotch Quay (66/1), Ballea Fox (66/1), Chicago Fire (66/1), Aphoristic (66/1), Annies Ann (66/1)

Verdict

Very little to go on, but Easy Gold is sure to be popular given his top connections. However, the selection is LE RICHEBOURG, who shaped well in a couple of bumpers and looks a likely sort for hurdling. Denham Sound ran her best race over hurdles last time and enters calculations.
  1. Le Richebourg
  2. Easy Gold
  3. Denham Sound
