Forecast

Cormier (1/1), Medalla De Oro (13/8), Doukarov (8/1), Dragon Sun (10/1), Hawk Wind (14/1), Mawlood (40/1), Postie (66/1), Debbonair (100/1), Saga Sprint (300/1), Foylesideview (300/1)

Verdict

MEDALLA DE ORO failed to land cramped odds at Southwell in July, but he's been given a break and is clearly capable of winning a race like this. Cormier has been in top form for weeks now and may have more to offer as a hurdler, so he's the chief threat under a penalty, with Dragon Sun a likely-looking NH newcomer.

  1. MEDALLA DE ORO
  2. CORMIER (IRE)
  3. DRAGON SUN
