Forecast

Midnights' Gift (15/8), Gavrocheka (4/1), Break The Rules (9/2), Operatic Export (6/1), Galice Macalo (11/1), Fantastic Ms Fox (18/1), Lady Shanawell (20/1), Mianna (20/1), Local Affair (25/1), Fleursals (25/1), Soft Summer Rain (50/1), Red Archangel (50/1), Caballine (50/1), Ravenscar (66/1)

Verdict
A slender margin split Midnights' Legend (first) and Break The Rules (second) when they pulled a long way clear at Fakenham last time out. Both are open to improvement and shortlisted for this contest. French import Gavrocheka should improve Ludlow hurdling debut for her leading connections but a chance is taken on OPERATIC EXPORT. She was competitive in some good Flat events in Ireland and could well go on to better things over jumps having joined this excellent trainer.
  1. Operatic Export
  2. Midnights' Gift
  3. Break The Rules
