Forecasts

Itchy Feet (1/5), Forecast (2/1), Coole Lion (5/1), Leskinfere (14/1)

Verdict

Although he made a somewhat disappointing return to action when only fourth at Kempton, ITCHY FEET is worth giving another chance to considering the level he reached as a novice-hurdler. He is 12lbs clear of his nearest rival on hurdles rating, and he should win this comfortably granted a clear round on chase debut. The nearest danger to the selection is Forecast who was a decent hurdler and does have the benefit of a run over the larger obstacles which came at Catterick last month (though he was an eight-length third). Leskinfere is not entitled to get anywhere near the aforementioned pair but looks booked for third given he has less to prove than Coole Lion.
