11/4
Smart chaser. Six wins from 18 NH runs. Smart winner at 20f in chases. Career best when winning 8-runner minor event hurdle at Limerick (20f, heavy, 10/3) 20 days ago. Should be thereabouts.

9/4
Lightly-raced winner under NH rules. 11/4, career best when winning 19-runner novice hurdle at Gowran (16f, good to soft) 56 days ago, well on top finish. Should progress further, so obvious player.

Forecasts

Indigo Breeze (9/4), Daly Tiger (11/4), Annamix (10/3), Autumn Evening (7/2), Top Moon (12/1), Georgette Fun (16/1)

Verdict

INDIGO BREEZE picked up strongly to make a winning return at Galway and, while a bit further might ultimately prove his optimum trip, he has the capability to follow up kept to 2m with further progress on the cards. Daly Tiger, a classy chaser who scored back over hurdles recently, is a big threat along with Autumn Evening.

  1. INDIGO BREEZE (FR)
  2. DALY TIGER (FR)
  3. AUTUMN EVENING
