Forecasts

Birch Vale (2/5), Rubenesque (13/2), Little Pippin (10/1), Anny's Land (10/1), Blue Baton (14/1), Pantomime (16/1), It's All About Me (18/1), Ask Madge (22/1), Roberttown Rose (50/1), Mini Dreams (100/1)

Verdict

Not a strong contest to start proceedings and this looks a good opportunity for BIRCH VALE to register another win over hurdles. She just failed to defy the penalty behind a well backed favourite at Perth and can get back to winning ways today. Blue Baton is well bred and will surely prove to be better that she has shown so far and Roberttown Rose is an interesting hurdling debutant to be watched.
