Forecast

Gosheven (11/10), I'm Wiser Now (2/1), Ashtown Lad (7/2), Laxey (5/1), Sleight Of Hand (10/1), Felony (12/1), Ship Of The Fen (14/1), Oscar Asche (20/1), Big Data (20/1), No Strangers Here (20/1), Arvico's Light (100/1), Secret Court (100/1), Sleptwithmebootson (100/1)

Verdict

A mixture of profiles on show, with Felony one of the less exposed names in the line-up. He makes his hurdles debut for a trainer/jockey combo who are going great guns at present, and he should be firmly in the mix after he stepped up markedly from an underwhelming debut effort to finish second last time out. However, preference is for GOSHEVEN who has had four attempts over obstacles, but has finished placed in behind some decent sorts. This looks a weaker contest than he is used to running in, & he can make it fifth time lucky over hurdles. I'm Wiser Now has never finished out of the placings when completing and can prove best of the rest, despite being frustrating.
  1. Gosheven
  2. Felony
  3. I'm Wiser Now
