Forecast

American History (2/1), Delirant (9/4), Marettimo (7/2), Winter Spice (12/1), D'gentle Reflexion (14/1), All Hands On Deck (16/1), Go On Mayson (25/1), Vanderbilt (25/1), Avocadeau (33/1), Maraakib (50/1), The Boola Bee (50/1), Iona Island (66/1), Outsmartin (66/1), Auld Sod (100/1), Rubheira (100/1), Princess Midnight (250/1)

Verdict

French Group 1 bumper winner Delirant is not highly tried on his hurdling debut and the market should be informative in relation to his prospects, but the fitting of a hood so early reveals continuing concerns he may not settle. Marettimo sets a modest standard, but one that should see him make the frame, and American History should give a good account over this longer trip. WINTER SPICE is a Flat winner who shaped well on his hurdling debut following an absence from the track when the uneven tempo counted against him. There are a few in here who like to make the running so that should not be an issue this time.
  1. Winter Spice
  2. Marettimo
  3. American History
