Forecast

Connetable (4/1), Sainte Ladylime (5/1), Book of Gold (7/1), Carnspindle (8/1), Poker Play (8/1), Coeur Blimey (8/1), This Is It (8/1), Ptit Zig (8/1), Salmanazar (16/1), Padge (16/1), Eminent Poet (16/1)

Verdict

Having run well in what appeared to be very testing ground in the Betfair Hurdle last time COEUR BLIMEY is presented with an easier opportunity off the same mark here. Provided that race hasn't taken too much out of the gelding he should be able to take advantage of what appears a much less competitive ground, not to mention what should be more favourable conditions. He narrowly gets the vote ahead of recent Grade 2 runner-up Sainte Ladylime and Paul Nicholls' Connetable.
  1. Coeur Blimey
  2. Sainte Ladylime
  3. Connetable
