Betting

Forecast

Kilcrea Vale (9/2), Shanahan's Turn (9/2), Catamaran Du Seuil (9/2), Forest Des Aigles (13/2), Captain Redbeard (7/1), Warriors Tale (15/2), Crievehill (8/1), Brandon Hill (11/1), Tiquer (40/1), More Buck's (40/1), Voix D'Eau (50/1)

Verdict

SHANAHAN'S TURN was only just touched off in the Topham last season and having struggled last time out on good ground he can bounce back to form now with the combination of testing conditions and these fences in his favour. Catamaran Du Seuil tackles these fences for the first time but is a very progressive sort so if he takes to them he has a big chance. Also on the up is Crievehill for Nigel Twiston-Davies whose runners are always respected over these fences.
