Forecasts

Laura Bullion (11/4), Olympic Honour (4/1), Colfer Me (4/1), Global Freedom (5/1), Theatre Of War (10/1), Champagne Terri (10/1), Clashaniska (16/1), Clemencia (20/1), Leahman (20/1), Khanmurjan (33/1), Doyouthinkso (40/1), Slainte (50/1), Isosceles (50/1)

Verdict

Colfer Me is an obvious contender given his ability at best on the Flat, and he represents a top yard now embarking on a jumps career. He does need to prove his stamina however and so preference is for Gordon Elliott's GLOBAL FREEDOM, twice placed since going over jumps and holding fair claims of going on better than this month's Ballinrobe effort. The selection's stablemate Clashaniska isn't dismissed while Laura Bullion also should be in the fray having finished close to the selection on her first start over hurdles.
  1. Global Freedom
  2. Laura Bullion
  3. Colfer Me
