Forecasts

Crooks Peak (4/6), Rouge Vif (7/2), Glen Forsa (7/1), Colonel Custard (10/1), It's Got Legs (10/1), Summit Like Herbie (20/1), Getadollar (100/1), Strictlyadancer (100/1), Ask Launa Esme (250/1)

Verdict

It's Got Legs brings some hurdling form and experience to the table, but faces several promising hurdling debutants headed by CROOKS PEAK, who was last seen finishing down the field in the Cheltenham Festival bumper. His earlier form entitles him to maximum respect and he is taken to see off the challenges of other well-regarded sorts in Rouge Vif and Colonel Custard. Glen Forsa and Summit Like Herbie are worth a check in the betting.
  1. Crooks Peak
