Forecast

Shantou Express (7/4), For Pleasure (9/4), One True King (5/2), Perfect Predator (5/1), Outisaid (66/1), Jenny Ren (66/1), High Renown (80/1), Move Closer (100/1), Persuer (125/1), War Of Succession (150/1), Glory Street (250/1)

Verdict

The market will no doubt reveal plenty here but it's worth siding with fairly useful bumper winner ONE TRUE KING to make a winning start over hurdles for Nigel Twiston-Davies. Perfect Predator rates much the pick of those with hurdling experience so looks a big danger, although another hurdling newcomer Shantou Express is also worth a second look given the promise he showed in bumpers.

  1. ONE TRUE KING (IRE)
  2. PERFECT PREDATOR
  3. SHANTOU EXPRESS (IRE)
