Forecasts

Thomas Darby (13/8), Summerville Boy (2/1), First Flow (2/1), Western Ryder (4/1), Captain Moirette (11/2), Mon Port (14/1), River Bray (18/1), Financier (40/1)

Verdict

Arguably the best novice chase so far this season. If the wind operation has done the trick then SUMMERVILLE BOY may make a winning start in this new sphere. The 2018 Supreme Novices' Hurdle winner is a class act and is well suited by easy ground. Thomas Darby, runner-up in last season's Supreme Novices' Hurdle, could be a big danger and has won first time out both previous seasons., while First Flow, another talented hurdler, is interesting returning from an eight-month absence for the yard that won this with Charbel three years ago. Western Ryder cannot be ruled out if he gets his jumping together, and Captain Moirette is an outsider who could outrun his odds.
