Forecast

The Princetonian (3/1), Misty Mountain (10/3), Red Pearl (9/2), Under Surveillance (11/2), Our Roxane (8/1), Its All A Lark (9/1), Krujers Girl (16/1), Derecho Storm (20/1), Beeper's Ruby (33/1), Raveloe (33/1), Westbank (33/1), Gone Galavanting (66/1), Likethemudda (66/1), Arcadette (66/1)

Verdict
Highest rated Flat performer THE PRINCETONIAN is clearly highly thought of having contested a couple of Graded bumpers earlier in the year and can get of the mark here on hurdling debut. Misty Mountain has already shown plenty of promise in two maiden hurdle spins this month and can hit the frame here with It's All A Lark possibly claiming the remaining place.
  1. The Princetonian
  2. Misty Mountain
  3. Its All A Lark
