Forecast

Luckyinmilan (9/10), Refused A Name (10/1), Larry Capri (12/1), James (12/1), Flynsini (14/1), Rebel Cry (14/1), Tulpar (16/1), I'm An Izz Wizz (16/1), A Grey Matter (16/1), Da Baba Elephant (16/1), Stoughan Cross (20/1), Theatre Princess (20/1), Goldmineinthesky (25/1), Il Fenomeno (25/1), Sunsetstorise (25/1), Tomcoole Lad (33/1), Notimetoserve (50/1)

Verdict
Refused A Name has been consistent in this sphere of late and his trainer is purring at the moment, so he goes on the shortlist as does Theatre Princess on foot of her Cork effort back in March. Rebel Cry ought to be fit from a recent spin over hurdles and knows how to jump a fence but the nod here goes to LUCKYINMILAN. He's been impressive over timber lately, jumps fences soundly enough and has a huge chance here if translating form across. Tulpar has fitness to prove but also looks well handicapped ahead of his first run for this trainer. 1. Luckyinmilan 2. Refused A Name 3. Tulpar
