Forecasts

Crushed (15/8), Turning Gold (9/4), Cornerstone Lad (7/1), Outcrop (9/1), Ecole D'art (9/1), Take The High Road (10/1), Shine Baby Shine (28/1), Pennington (200/1), Investigation (250/1), About Glory (250/1), Millie The Minx (250/1)

Verdict

Quite an interesting opener, with locally-trained Cornerstone Lad the only previous winner and respected for that, but clearly also vulnerable under his penalty. TURNING GOLD finished ahead of him on the same terms at Wetherby last time, his hurdles debut, and he is taken to improve for that and go one better. Take The High Road, Crushed and Ecole D'Art are very interesting newcomers to the National Hunt game and are in good hands. It would not surprise if all three put in good performances, while Shine Baby Shine arrives in form and deserves a market check.
