14/1
Bit disappointing on sole bumper run at Punchestown in May, fading out of contention in the straight, and may have needed the run on return last time out in April. Betting to be noted from top yard.

Betting

Forecast

Hey Little Boy (11/8), Theydon Park (10/3), High Nellie (5/1), Creadan Grae (8/1), Storm Racer (8/1), Calin Des Ongrais (11/1), Become Legend (14/1), Earthly Reason (20/1), Realta Dawn (25/1), Walkers Point (25/1), Mist Of Magic (33/1), Vellutato (33/1), Royal Haslar (50/1), Cottonvale (66/1), Geni Johnson (66/1), Raising Cain (100/1)

Verdict

The main brunt of the pace will come from Walker's Point here, with possibly Storm Racer and Cottondale sent off in pursuit. Creaden Grae, with top trainer/jockey combo and Theydon Park, claimer takes an important 3lb off here, must be considered, but preference is for HEY LITTLE BOY, purchased for racing syndicate with powerful yard for €75,000.
