Betting

Forecast

Thirsty Work (2/1), Alto Esqua (9/2), Monbeg Chit Chat (8/1), Crosshue Boy (10/1), The Irregular (10/1), Justmemyselfandi (11/1), Head Turner (12/1), Art Of Synergy (12/1), Fenlon's Hill (14/1), Ardera Cross (14/1), Soul Kaliber (16/1)

Verdict

HEAD TURNER, the sole mare in the contest can record her second victory over fences ahving won at Fairyhouse last time out. The selection has performed best when racing on ground with plenty of cut in it and she can take this at the chief expense of Tramore winner Ardera Cross who returns from a break today while Monbeg Chit Chat can put in his best chase performance so far by finishing third.
