Forecast

Doctor Duffy (8/15), Braid Blue (6/4), Macgiloney (9/2), Stacks Mountain (6/1), The White Volcano (13/2), Dortmund Park (10/1), All's Quiet (33/1), Not So Simple (33/1), Avec Espoir (150/1), Lady Violet (150/1)

Verdict
Some top class hurdlers on show in the chase contest and a slight preference is given to BRAID BLUE who won four races last year and was a runner-up in a decent novice event at Cheltenham. Only downside is that he has not been seen since October last year (though only missed a Cheltenham Festival engagement because of the soft ground). Doctor Duffy was another decent hurdler and he has the advantage of a run over fences under his belt. He needs to improve. Dortmund Park was yet another great hurdler but has not shined in three chase outings so far. Perhaps recent wind surgery will have helped.
  1. Braid Blue
