Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

KOENIGSSTERN has started off well over hurdles and this dual points scorer is fancied to build on his excellent Warwick third and get off the mark in this sphere. Alan King's hurdling newcomer HMS President brings plenty of potential judged on his useful-winning Flat form and rates a big danger though. Military Tycoon appeals as the pick of the rest for place purposes.

Betting Forecast

9/4 Hms President (Ire), 300/1 On The Nose, 250/1 Dancing Master (Ire), 5/2 Koenigsstern (Ire), 15/2 Lario (Ger), 28/1 Inigo (Fr), 6/1 Onewayortother (Fr), 300/1 Freddy Boy, 22/1 Seaside Legend (Ire), 14/1 Military Tycoon (Ire), 100/1 Je Suis Sacre (Fr), 80/1 Celtic Orla (Ire)
