Forecast

Megabucks (3/1), Wandrin Star (7/2), Dark Mahler (4/1), Secret Door (13/2), Free Range (12/1), Old Salt (12/1), Farm The Rock (12/1), Hey Bill (14/1), Volt Face (25/1)

Verdict

Secret Door and Volt Face have claims on their best form but recent efforts raise doubts as to whether that can be reproduced here. Winning point-to-pointers Wandrin Star, Megabucks and Farm The Rock all have potential to do better than they have shown so far, whilst Dark Mahler beat a much weaker field here in November. Old Salt looks the type to step up considerably on what we have seen so far over fences, but the vote goes to HEY BILL. The dual-winning hurdler has dropped to his last winning mark and will be better for his debut over fences last month. That was his third run back from a year's absence and he travelled well for much of the way in a strongly run race.
  1. Hey Bill
