Betting

Forecast

Umndeni (4/5), Birds Of Prey (11/8), Rosy World (10/1), Minella Examiner (10/1), Grange Ranger (16/1), Do It For Thy Sen (33/1), High Up In The Air (50/1), Three In One (66/1), Marocchino (100/1), Bit Spicy (125/1)

Verdict

The smart Flat handicapper BIRDS OF PREY has so far been beaten twice over hurdles at short odds but he’s done very little wrong in either defeat and gets a good chance to make amends here. He won’t have events all his own way though as Umndeni bids to make up for his mishap at the start last time on the back of two good hurdling efforts ( looked smart on bumper debut). He does still look to have a bit to learn though and another placing could be on the cards. Minella Examiner went well last time out and hopefully he will last home this time while Grange Ranger should be noted for a market move having cost plenty after falling in his only point-to-point; connections have been very patient.
  1. Birds Of Prey
  2. Umndeni
