Betting

Forecast

Latin Knight (13/8), Makthecat (9/4), Hatcher (5/1), Paseo (11/2), Miss Morocco (14/1), Mountain Ruler (16/1), We've Got The Love (100/1)

Verdict
Makthecat sets the standard on Flat form, having won here and finished second in his two starts, but may well struggle to beat HATCHER. Rated in the mid-130's over jumps and winner of a 'jumpers bumper' easily last Sunday, he is an interesting recruit to this sphere. Latin Knight ran well at Kempton on debut but will need to build on that on a new surface whilst Mountain Ruler didn't look devoid of ability on debut despite showing his inexperience.
