Forecasts

Verdict

A rather unappealing novices handicap hurdle, in which the top-weighted ASKING QUESTIONS should have a positive role to play following an improved effort at Ffos Las last month; form which could be well advertised by Steel Native in the previous race. A winner of a 3m Tyrella point-to-point in January 2017, this longer trip should play to his strengths in a very winnable contest. Of the others Theatre Stage has claims in a race where the pace should be decent with front runners such as Justice Knight and Odello in the line up.
