Forecast

Angel of Harlem (5/6), Follow The Bear (9/4), Court Dreaming (5/2), Comrade Conrad (3/1), Wynford (14/1)

Verdict

Very likely that FOLLOW THE BEAR will set out to make this a good test and top weight might not be enough of a burden to stop the Nicky Henderson-trained gelding. Angel Of Harlem goes well for Richard Johnson and has to merit consideration despite the mare needing to prove this trip suits her ideally. Court Dreaming has scope for improvement and completes the shortlist ahead of Wynford, who is another with course form to his name but has something to prove on his debut run over hurdles for his new yard.
  1. Follow The Bear
  2. Angel of Harlem
  3. Court Dreaming
