Betting

Forecast

Coquelicot (1/1), Rookie Trainer (3/1), Brummie Boys (5/1), Van Meegeren (17/2), Kala Noire (10/1), Lifeisahighway (22/1), Willies Dream (25/1), Langafel Bee (25/1), Smarter (40/1), Truckers Time (150/1), The Bolshoi Bandit (200/1)

Verdict

COQUELICOT accomplished what many horses don't by winning three bumpers last season, so has to be marked down as a potentially exciting recruit to hurdling. Brummie Boys and Rookie Trainer are considered the main threats in that order.

  1. COQUELICOT (FR)
  2. BRUMMIE BOYS (IRE)
  3. ROOKIE TRAINER (IRE)
