Forecast

Mister Coffey (11/8), On To Victory (11/4), Who What When (9/1), Premiumaccess (9/1), Shakem Up'arry (11/1), Scorched Earth (16/1), Stimulating Song (16/1), Buzz De Turcoing (33/1), Kilpin (33/1), Cristal Spirit (33/1), Dylan's Sea Song (50/1), Another Tuco (100/1), Larcadio (100/1), Call Me Chris (100/1), Aheadfullofdreams (100/1), Winged Affair (150/1), Flintara (200/1)

Verdict

An interesting event despite the very mixed level of ability on display with the obvious choice the hurdling debutant Mister Coffey who also makes his first start for the Henderson yard having cost an eye-watering £340,000 in May. Described as an imposing sort the market is sure to give an idea of his worth but the choice goes to good Flat stayer ON TO VICTORY who showed plenty of promise on his hurdling debut until tipping up at the last, compensation awaits. Premiumaccess and Scored Earth are a couple of others that are likely to be involved whilst the good bumper filly Who What When may well attract some attention as she tries hurdles for the first time.
  1. On To Victory
  2. Mister Coffey
  3. Premiumaccess
