Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

TOSSAPENNY has clearly had his share of problems, but February's return to action was very encouraging and he's capable of winning a maiden hurdle. Bucko's Boy has been held back by his jumping so far but, with a clear round, he looks the main danger.

Betting Forecast

6/5 Tossapenny (Ire), 2/1 Bucko's Boy, 9/1 Dancing Doris, 8/1 Global Agreement, 22/1 Chat To Charlie (Ire), 150/1 Twice The Mustard
