Forecast

Illustrissime (7/4), Dorking Boy (11/4), Highly Prized (9/2), Guns of Leros (5/1), Jacamar (15/2), Gaelic Prince (20/1), Meagher's Flag (40/1), Global Wonder (50/1), Vinnie's Icon (100/1), Ballycanew (150/1), Pania (150/1)

Verdict

There’s a suspicion that Dorking Boy who started his hurdling career in Grade 2 event is better than he’s shown so far over timber. He does, however, have to show more than he did last time out and jump better although the reapplied headgear may help in that area. ILLUSTRISSIME is just preferred though despite having been beaten last time out plus having to give a penalty away; he’ll need to jump better than he did last time but this looks an ideal test for him. Highly Prized will have to recapture his Wincanton form to have a chance while Guns Of Leros and Gaelic Prince are worth noting in the betting for positive moves.
  1. Illustrissime
  2. Dorking Boy
  3. Gaelic Prince
