Forecast

King Alfonso (11/10), Capitoul (15/8), Foxy Act (7/1), Vancouver (9/1), Noel's Boy (16/1), Stormy Blues (20/1), Starlit Night (33/1), Top Beak (50/1), Rising Sunshine (50/1), Lucky Purchase (66/1)

Verdict
CAPITOUL was the winner of a similar race to this on his penultimate start and he can register another selling hurdle success by taking this ten runner event. The selection looks capable of getting the better of his rivals with King Alfonso who is dropping in grade capable of claiming second spot ahead of Noel's Boy who showed ability when placed in a bumper here earlier this season.
  1. Capitoul
  2. King Alfonso
  3. Noel's Boy
