Forecast

Yafordadoe (15/8), Gerry's Way (9/2), Surmise (11/2), Glory (13/2), Mithmaar (8/1), Reddiac (8/1), Segenhoe (17/2), Pick On Me (18/1), Pon Me Soul (20/1), Getaway Jack (25/1), Glen Luce (33/1), Zaccarela (80/1)

Verdict
YAFORDADOE has plenty of experience over hurdles now and could be set for his first victory if he can translate his useful Flat form over timber. It has been his jumping that has let him down in the past but if he can improve then he should go well. Mithmaar is another fair Flat performer. His hurdles introduction was marred with jumping errors but if he can put them behind him then he could go well. Glory was well regarded on the Flat in his juvenile days when with Richard Hannon. He turned into no more than an average handicapper but was generally consistent and if he takes to hurdling then he has a chance on debut.
  1. Yafordadoe
  2. Mithmaar
  3. Glory
