Betting

Forecast

Horse Force One (5/4), Sufi (2/1), Zulu (6/1), Collingwood Court (17/2), Hawridge Storm (10/1), Pour Une Raison (50/1), Alfie's Angel (80/1), Alkademon (125/1), Thegreymarestail (150/1)

Verdict

Dual course bumper winner HORSE FORCE ONE disappointed in a Wincanton handicap when last seen in January but soft ground may have been to blame and he's worth one final chance to translate that bumper ability to hurdles. In a contest where worthwhile hurdle form is thin on the ground, the main threat may come from Flat-recruits Sufi and Hawridge Storm.

  1. HORSE FORCE ONE (IRE)
  2. SUFI
  3. HAWRIDGE STORM (IRE)
