Forecast

Marley Firth (1/1), Jaisalmer (3/1), Miss Tynte (7/1), Lost History (11/1), Paddy's Poem (12/1), Miss Adventure (20/1), Age Of Wisdom (20/1), Havisham (20/1), Rebel Collins (33/1), Hier Encore (100/1), Mr Magill (100/1), Cassivellaunus (200/1), Abbey Street (200/1), Cockney Seagull (200/1)

Verdict
It is unlikely that there is anything lurking in here that will have the ability to beat MARLEY FIRTH, who was readied to win well on his debut and perhaps didn't quite get the trip over further in a Grade 2 last time. Back down to two miles, he will take some beating despite his penalty. Jaisalmer would have very solid claims if he could get back to his form of last season, while similar applies to Lost History, who wouldn't be too far off the mark if back to his Lingfield hurdles debut form. Miss Adventure is another in the same vein, while Miss Tynte is also of interest. Debutante Age Of Wisdom should be checked out in the market and a good start to his career over timber would be no surprise.
  1. Marley Firth
  2. Age Of Wisdom
  3. Jaisalmer
