Betting

Forecast

Gagas Horse (9/10), An Caisteal Nuadh (4/1), Kiera Royale (7/1), Criminate (8/1), Riverrainshine (12/1), Echo Lady (18/1), Cottonvale (20/1), Absolute Grit (33/1), Witness Cant State (50/1), Aussie Guest (66/1), Iftikaar (66/1), Rosskerrig (80/1), Bondi Bull (100/1), Ellie's Choice (100/1)

Verdict

Aussie Guest or Gagas Horse could be the one to take them along here with Riverrainshine, Criminate and Echo Lady racing prominently in behind. Preference is for the Adrian Maguire-trained GAGAS HORSE, who is expected to improve on his 13L defeat, third of nine in a Down Royal bumper on hurdling debut.
