Betting

Forecast

Project Mars (85/40), Crocodile Dundee (3/1), Mystic Court (5/1), Passing Shadow (13/2), A Book Of Intrigue (10/1), Brave Jaq (11/1), Golden Wolf (14/1), Court Glory (16/1), Cold Shoulder (16/1), Clearly Capable (18/1), Linguine (40/1)

Verdict

A BOOK OF INTRIGUE was talented enough to win 2 bumpers, and though it didn't immediately click over hurdles, he's been handed a potentially-lenient mark as a result on this handicap debut. Project Mars is unlikely to want for fitness on return for Fergal O'Brien, while Crocodile Dundee is respected as a recent winner.
