Verdict

An interesting finale featuring several nice prospects. Cat Tiger is 0-4 over hurdles but won two Grade 3 races over fences in France. Forchena swept around rivals to lead into the straight in a Southwell bumper but weakened close home. She should make a hurdler and Old Jeroboam is 2-2 in bumpers. OLLY THE BRAVE won easily in that sphere at Warwick in May. He will have had plenty of schooling and could have too much pace for the likely short-priced favourite.
