Forecasts

Mantovani (10/11), Friend Or Foe (3/1), Zanzi Win (11/2), Zafar (7/1), Tiffin Top (7/1), Peloric (25/1), Karakoram (40/1), Good Impression (40/1), Caviar Royale (100/1), True Thoughts (250/1), Golden Footsteps (250/1)

Verdict

An interesting bunch with one or two seemingly decent newcomers from stable who do well with this type and others who have already have some hurdles experience. Of those in that group Mantovani sets the standard after his decent Exeter debut and he along with Friend Or Foe will prove to both have decent chances. Zanzi Win looks to have some of the best Flat form on offer having been useful in France and a prominent hurdles debut is expected along with Zafar. Alan King is always to be noted/respected in this sphere and his TIFFIN TOP (related to a decent hurdler) could well make a winning debut at a course where the trainer has a decent record.
  1. Tiffin Top
  2. Mantovani
  3. Friend Or Foe
