Forecasts

Viking Hoard (9/2), Dawson's Cottage (9/2), Royal Recital (5/1), Master Cornwall (5/1), Woodbrook Boy (6/1), Drifting Back (17/2), Made In Pimlico (12/1), Elderado (14/1), Supreme Vinnie (16/1), Sight Nor Seen (16/1), Fleurys Fort (20/1), Well Joey (22/1), Champagne Auction (25/1), Getting In Touch (33/1), Father Jed (50/1), Thomas O'Malley (66/1)

Verdict

A few with chances but WOODBROOK BOY posted a good sixth over fences at Wexford and can race off a much lower mark here reverted to hurdles so gets the nod. Royal Recital is feared most on the back of his good Tramore second with Master Cornwall another worth a look now he takes a step up in trip.

  1. WOODBROOK BOY (IRE)
  2. ROYAL RECITAL (IRE)
  3. MASTER CORNWALL (IRE)
