Forecast

Putdecashonthedash (9/4), Bill And Barn (11/2), Footloose (6/1), Mr Washington (7/1), Hit The Highway (15/2), Mr Magill (9/1), Clondaw Bisto (9/1), Cock A Doodle Doo (16/1), Paddys Runner (25/1), Deewhy (50/1), Darsi Rose (66/1), Calypso Jack (100/1)

Verdict

HIT THE HIGHWAY was a winner over fences last time out and he can defy a 7lb rise in the weights to take this competitive looking novices' handicap event. The selection is taken to get the better of Clondaw Bisto who stays well and was placed last time out while third place can go to Putdecashonthedash who can put a fall last time out behind him.
  1. Hit The Highway
  2. Clondaw Bisto
  3. Putdecashonthedash
