Forecasts

Black Centaur (5/2), Kendelu (7/2), Miss Honey Ryder (9/2), Crown Hill (10/1), Hot Ryan (14/1), It's For Alan (14/1), Malachys Girl (16/1), Master Tradesman (20/1), Drumlynn (20/1), Terrafirma Lady (25/1), Lake Shore Drive (33/1), Gang Warfare (40/1), What A Baloo (66/1), Final List (66/1)

Verdict

BLACK CENTAUR ran well at Hereford last time and could turn out to be the answer to this very open handicap. Kendelu has a much better recent record than most of these and is respected, while It's For Alan is fairly treated on his peak hurdle form and has run some good races over fences this term.

  1. BLACK CENTAUR (IRE)
  2. KENDELU (IRE)
  3. IT'S FOR ALAN
