Fair 17L fourth over an extended 2m6f on yielding-to-soft ground at Limerick in December. Failed to build on that at Cork (2m4f, soft) subsequently however and others hold stronger claims.

Forecast

Rocky's Silver (4/1), Castafiore Park (5/1), Cappacurry Zak (5/1), Glorious Galway (7/1), The Ballyboys (7/1), Witness Of Fashion (7/1), Nicole's Milan (8/1), Clontarf (11/1), Spancil Hill (14/1), Red River Gold (14/1), Alto Esqua (14/1), Flynsini (16/1), Simple Steps (20/1), Capture The Drama (20/1), Rightback Atya (33/1), He Rock's (33/1), Asitsohappens (33/1), Tj Goodtymes (50/1)

Verdict

ROCKY'S SILVER has been in good form in recent starts and he can register a third victory in four starts by taking this competitive handicap chase. The selection has won here in the past and he can get the better of last years winner Cappacurry Zak who has to defy top weight. The Ballyboys has a top jockey in the saddle here and he can finish third in this event.
  1. Rocky's Silver
  2. Cappacurry Zak
