Forecast

Imperial Alcazar (13/8), Green Dolphin (4/1), Lossiemouth (6/1), Corrany (15/2), One Touch (10/1), Coconut Splash (14/1), Big Bad Bear (14/1), Copper Coin (16/1), Frisson Collonges (16/1), Commit Or Quit (25/1), Grey Getaway (33/1), Meteorite (40/1), Five Star Getaway (40/1), State Vision (80/1), Tico Times (125/1)

Verdict

A new jumps season at Aintree kicks-off with a fascinating maiden hurdle featuring a whole host of expensive recruits from the Irish point-to-point scene. Collectively, five of those declared (Coconut Splash, Commit Or Quit, Five Star Getaway, Frisson Collonges and Grey Getaway) have cost their new connections a staggering £615,000. As a consequence hopes will be high for a productive season. In terms of today's race the pair to concentrate upon could be Imperial Alcazar (trainer saddled a treble at Cheltenham on Friday) and LOSSIEMOUTH. The selection is held in very high regard by trainer Tom Lacey and his winning form in bumpers is strong.
  1. Lossiemouth
  2. Imperial Alcazar
  3. Coconut Splash
