Betting

Forecast

Sorbet (5/4), Medalla De Oro (2/1), Eros (11/2), Kingfast (6/1), Fingal D'Arthel (14/1), Monarchofthegrange (16/1), Miaella (50/1), Maid Of Camelot (150/1)

Verdict

Although it has been a while since KINGFAST has seen a hurdle, he is fit from a recent outing on the Flat and appears to have some of the best form in the race based on his effort at Cheltenham in October against some useful rivals. If able to reproduce that here then he may take all the beating. Eros enjoyed the step back in trip last time at Huntingdon and if he can show that level of form again he should go well. Sorbet has plenty of experience over hurdles and has a fair amount of ability to boot. She can take advantage if any of the market leaders fail to flourish.
  1. Kingfast
  2. Eros
  3. Sorbet
