Forecasts

Westend Story (11/4), Shantou Bob (5/1), Tomngerry (11/2), Eminent Poet (13/2), One For Harry (8/1), Head To The Stars (8/1), Top Ville Ben (10/1), Sky Khan (10/1), Desert Cry (14/1)

Verdict

Smart bumper performer WESTEND STORY could make a mockery of this handicap mark for Phillip Hobbs and Richard Johnson. Things didn't go to plan last season but he could be one of the best handicapped hurdlers in training at present. It would be no surprise if Tomngerry is also better than his opening handicap mark after a very impressive start to his hurdling career and he is an obvious threat. The others could be at the mercy of this unexposed pair but Eminent Poet improved throughout the season last year and ought to remain competitive off his current mark.
  1. Westend Story
  2. Tomngerry
  3. Eminent Poet
