Forecasts

Nemean Lion (5/1), Misfits (11/2), Lawtop Legend (11/2), Cottonvale (13/2), Kalaharry (8/1), Espoir Moriviere (8/1), Along Came Theo (8/1), Onwiththeparty (12/1), It's All About Me (14/1), Pershing Missile (14/1), Turtle Cask (28/1), Overtheedge (50/1)

Verdict

Typically Hexham, with no shortage of C&D proven performers. Some will no doubt be prepared to give the reliable Lawtop Legend the benefit of the doubt and hope that he's able to replicate his good ground winning form, but he's unlikely to represent a great deal of value and is closely matched with It's All About Me and Espoir Moriviere. Cottonvale is a 20-race maiden, yet notable as the first ever Hexham runner for Glamorgan trainer Christian Williams. However, the sensible option is the mud-lark MISFITS who bolted up over fences here in October and can prove equally adept now switched to the smaller obstacles by Lucinda Russell.
  1. Misfits
  2. Along Came Theo
  3. Espoir Moriviere
