Forecasts

Tiffin Top (6/5), Heatstroke (9/4), Olympic Odyssey (11/2), Ballycaines (15/2), No Hidden Charges (16/1), Highly Prized (20/1), Postman (50/1), Binn Boru (100/1), Johni Boxit (100/1), Nordenfelt (100/1)

Verdict

If Heatstroke could be guaranteed to show his debut form over hurdles he would be the clear pick here but his run last time left a lot to be desired and it remains to be seen if he can bounce back. Ballycaines gives trainer Nicky Henderson a decent back up but he might just need this first experience over hurdles having been lightly-raced so far. The form of TIFFIN TOP stands up to close inspection and he’s taken to follow up his Hereford victory. Highly Prized is an interesting newcomer making the switch from the USA to hurdling in this country; his Flat form gives him a chance if he takes to timber.
  1. Tiffin Top
  2. Highly Prized
  3. Heatstroke
