Forecasts

Free Ranger (6/4), A Place Apart (9/2), Joe The Crow (11/2), Adulterated (11/2), Ar Eagla Na Heagla (8/1), Misty Mountain (10/1), Autumn Berry (25/1), Greenandwhitearmy (33/1), Rising (66/1), Hells Angel (66/1), Arizengo (100/1)

Verdict

FREE RANGER has shown consistency in three hurdling starts so far (placed in each) and was perhaps unlucky not to be close las time. He sports an array of new headgear now and, up in trip, can open his account. Joe The Crow wasn't far behind the selection on his jumping bow last time and should improve while Adulterated, sporting a hood, is the sort to come good for Gigginstown after a summer off.
