Forecasts

Shattered Glass (7/4), Sandford Castle (5/2), Writteninthesand (11/2), Vango De Vaige (7/1), Clondaw's Answer (15/2), Bogoss Du Perret (17/2), Write It Down (10/1), Nessfield Blue (10/1), Brigadier Bob (16/1), Hedgeinator (20/1), Bonanza Sam (40/1), Abbey Street (50/1)

Verdict

WRITTENINTHESAND's jumping went to pot at Hereford when last seen in November, but he showed enough on his Market Rasen chase debut a month earlier to suggest that he has a future over fences. Tom George's charge is marginally preferred to Shattered Glass, who will be a threat if able to build on his latest improved effort. Sandford Castle is also feared and Write It Down is dangerous to discount.
