Forecast

Tidal Flow (5/4), Before Midnight (15/8), Kootenay River (4/1), Little Miss Darsi (16/1), Old Rascals (28/1), Black Lightning (33/1), Ratfacemcdougall (50/1), Noble Quest (50/1), Wings of Darkness (66/1), Glorious Boru (80/1), Tractor Fred (100/1), Uncle O (100/1)

Verdict

BEFORE MIDNIGHT is taken to put his unseat at Chepstow last time out behind him by taking this competitive novice hurdle. The selection looked a likely winner that day and can see off Kootenay River who showed up well in a couple of bumpers in the spring. Third place can go the way of Tidal Flow who can take third on hurdling debut.
  1. Before Midnight
  2. Kootenay River
  3. Tidal Flow
