Forecasts

Brahms De Clermont (10/11), Show On The Road (6/1), Grapevine (6/1), Parthenius (8/1), Sizing Cusimano (12/1), Desiremoi D'Authie (12/1), Friday Night Light (20/1), Flight To Milan (50/1), Duc Kauto (66/1), Miss Tynte (80/1), Ticket To Ride (100/1), Flying Verse (100/1), Emell (150/1), Bergholt (200/1)

Verdict

This will be a tough ask for BRAHMS DE CLERMONT under a double penalty but the manner of his latest win suggests he is up to the challenge and he gets the nod once more. Show On The Road is certainly a danger in receipt of 12lb after a good second last time over C&D. There are several hurdling newcomers worthy of respect and the best of them could prove to be Grapevine for champion trainer Nicky Henderson.
  1. Brahms De Clermont
  2. Show On The Road
  3. Grapevine
