Forecasts

Cilaos Emery (4/9), Mick Jazz (7/1), Camelia De Cotte (7/1), Sire Du Berlais (12/1), Montana Belle (16/1), Art Of Security (20/1), Aeglos (50/1)

Verdict

An enthralling race to open proceeding and despite the potentially lopsided market, it is anything but a one-horse race. Art Of Security got off the mark last time out and could be open to further improvement while Montana Belle has been getting better with each start over hurdles to date. French import Sire De Berlais is noted for connections being pitched in first time in Ireland in a hot race while Camelia De Cotte was an easy winner on debut in powerful colours. The two to focus on appear to be Mick Jazz and CILAOS EMERY, the former sets the standard based on his Fairyhouse handicap effort and will ensure that the selection is forced to justify the hype. Cilaos Emery has designs on Cheltenham next month and after winning very easily at Navan on debut, can book his trip to the Cotswolds with another success, but the dangers are most certainly lurking. 1. Cilaos Emery 2. Mick Jazz 3. Camelia De Cotte
