Betting

Forecast

Crown Of Thorns (4/1), Epsilon Indi (6/1), Something Sweet (13/2), Lady Of The Sea (7/1), Cadawill (8/1), Randall's Aoibhinn (8/1), Jessicor (12/1), Gliondar Mo Chroi (12/1), Bobbythegangster (14/1), Whitber's Choice (14/1), Maifitz's Madonna (16/1), Can't Be Done (20/1), Dan Gun (20/1), Fern Owl (33/1), Whats Your Beef (33/1), Catch My Drift (50/1), Brog Deas Nua (50/1)

Verdict

CROWN OF THORNS can defy top weight and in the process register his first victory over hurdles following a run of good placed efforts. Cadawill has been in good form in recent times and he can finish runner-up ahead of Lady Of The Sea who can take third on her first attempt at this distance.
