Betting

Forecast

Glen Ode (11/4), Cappacurry Zak (10/3), Winter Magic (6/1), Maguire's Glen (7/1), Lisclogher Lad (7/1), Soaring High (8/1), The Conker Club (14/1), Flynsini (14/1), Macs Legend (20/1)

Verdict

Winter Magic ran well here on his penultimate start and could get involved with a similar effort while The Conker Club scored here last month but has since run disappointingly at Leopardstown. Lisclogher Lad was an eye-catcher on his handicap chase bow at Limerick and looks to hold leading claims having been upped 3lbs since. A tentative vote goes to GLEN ODE who built on his reappearance when third at Punchestown on New Year's Eve and could land a blow here if taking another small step forward. 1. Glen Ode 2. Lisclogher Lad 3. The Conker Club
