Betting

Forecast

Global Racing (9/2), Lord Schnapps (5/1), Classic Concorde (6/1), Yendo (7/1), Live Every Day (8/1), Courtin Bb (8/1), Double Windsor (10/1), Shake The Bucket (12/1), Nibblers Charm (14/1), Bye Bye O Bye (20/1), Allduckornodinner (20/1), Roxys Holly (20/1), Black Label (25/1), The Artful Roger (25/1), Absolute Grit (33/1), Perle Rose (50/1), Olive D'Haguenet (50/1)

Verdict

The drop in trip shouldn't inconvenience impressive Kilbeggan winner CLASSIC CONCORDE and he is taken to follow up that victory with a success in this staying handicap hurdle. The selection has a useful amateur rider on board and he can get the better of Courtin Bb who is another to have won at Kilbeggan last time. Third place can go to the admirable veteran Shake The Bucket on his return to hurdling.
  1. Classic Concorde
  2. Courtin Bb
