Forecasts

Palladium (4/11), Hereia (4/1), Zarafshan (9/1), Mr Chua (10/1), Brambledown (20/1)

Verdict

He never really showed his full potential on the Flat when with Martyn Meade but PALLADIUM has the potential to make a hurdler and was a little unlucky not to make a winning debut in this sphere at Warwick. With that experience under his belt he should go close to making amends here. The 6lb that Hereia has to concede to the rest of the field looks as though it could anchor him despite the drop in grade. Both Brambledown and Mr Chua have questions to answer and it may well be that the biggest danger comes from Zarafshan on his hurdling debut, he has a very similar profile to the favourite and could well make up into a hurdler.
