Betting

Forecast

Heavenly Promise (5/2), Luck Of The Legion (11/4), American Life (5/1), Jimmy (11/2), Mauna Kea (13/2), Trysor Ynys (20/1), Quarry Lami (20/1), Velvet Cognac (22/1), Parisian Affair (25/1)

Verdict

Heavenly Promise is an interesting runner off a lower hurdles mark having made a pleasing start for these connections over fences at Worcester but her pervious form over timber leaves a bit to be desired. This isn't the strongest opener and it might be worth side with Warwick winner LUCK OF THE LEGION to defy an 8lb rise as she looks to have scope to do so. The veteran American Life could snare some place money.
