Forecast

Ask Nile (9/4), Moroval (3/1), Berry Des Aulmes (9/2), So Sorry Sarah (7/1), Time Factor (7/1), Mr Champers (8/1), Young Bidder (16/1), Ocean Explorer (20/1), For Carmel (25/1), Veneziano Springs (33/1), Fr Captain Murphy (33/1), Slaney Craiglegacy (50/1), The Way It Is (50/1), Legal Lord (66/1), Auction Reminder (100/1), Valiant Vixen (100/1), Instinctly (100/1), Meelin Nineonesix (100/1), Mister Orcadian (100/1), The Pipers Cottage (100/1), Ballyvaldon Boy (100/1)

Verdict
Ask Nile has run well all three starts over hurdles thus far and will likely do well again here but may settle for minor honours. Moroval made a good start to this game in December at Limerick and will likely appreciate the slightly better ground forecast for a trainer in flying form but BERRY DES AULMES also ran a solid race at Tramore last time and gets the nod to score here having been dropped in trip. Mr Champers is worth a look as he switches from bumpers to hurdles having run with promise thus far while newcomer The Way It Is should be monitored in the market for a trainer that has done well in this sphere of late. 1. Berry Des Aulmes 2. Ask Nile 3. The Way It Is
