Forecast

Eva's Diva (5/4), Hats Off To Larry (10/3), George Gently (7/2), Bran (15/2), Waterproof (12/1), Taqwaa (25/1), Fforbidden Love (33/1), Incredible Dream (50/1), Dandy Times (50/1)

Verdict

HATS OFF TO LARRY is back over hurdles following success on the Flat and he can get off the mark here at the third attempt over obstacles in what looks to be a wide open maiden contest. Eva's Diva has gone close on all three of her handicap starts and off the same mark as her third place finish at this course last time, expect to see her in the mix again at the business end of the race, while George Gently is one to enter your calculations following his positive run at Musselburgh on his return to action.
  1. Hats Off To Larry
  2. Eva's Diva
  3. George Gently
