Forecasts

From The Heart (4/1), Bolving (9/2), Strictlyadancer (9/2), Hurricane Arcadio (11/2), Midnight Magic (6/1), Robyndzone (17/2), Ruffling Feathers (9/1), Hahadi (10/1), Fenlons Court (16/1), Minella Examiner (16/1), Out For Justice (20/1), Miss Zip (40/1), Troed Y Melin (66/1)

Verdict

MIDNIGHT MAGIC has been in good form in recent months and he can put an Exeter fall last time out behind him to defy top weight in this competitive novices' handicap chase. Second place can go the way of Bolving who ran well on seasonal debut on his most recent start while third place can go to Strictlyadancer who has a highly promising conditional jockey in the saddle stepping up in trip.
  1. Midnight Magic
  2. Bolving
  3. Strictlyadancer
