Forecasts

Verdict

Joke Dancer has the best piece of hurdles form on offer going into this and if he can handle these testing conditions, then he looks capable of going very close again. However, NIBLAWI comes here fit from the Flat, should be well schooled and is taken to win on his hurdling debut, though he too has to prove it on this ground. Shivermetimbers is an interesting hurdling newcomer who will surely be able to acquit himself well, while Silk Or Scarlet and Samson's Reach are both probably capable of better this time.
