Forecast

Templepark (4/9), The Greater Good (2/1), Punkawallah (14/1), Hooper's Legend (18/1), Mossy Glen (40/1), Ahead Of Schedule (80/1), Lucky Purchase (100/1), Magnetic (125/1)

Verdict

Just a modest event to begin the card but a chance for TEMPLEPARK, a winner over larger obstacles and a solid second in a recent course handicap chase, to get off the mark at the fourth attempt over timber. The Greater Good ran too free on his Rules debut in a Southwell bumper earlier this month but will have learned plenty and this winner between the flags looks the main danger to the selection given connections. In 2016 Hoopers Legend showed promise in three runs over hurdles but hasn't been seen since and may well need the run, but Punkawallah has shown a bit of recent form over hurdles and a fair display is by no means out of the question.
  1. Templepark
