Forecast

Notwhatiam (4/1), Concordin (9/2), Wishmoor (13/2), Mine Now (7/1), Rue Hill (10/1), Brave Out (10/1), Lets High Five It (10/1), Asitsohappens (14/1), Hollow Tree (16/1), Thekingofrocknroll (20/1), Undefined Beauty (20/1), Toubaloo (20/1), Letter Of Credit (25/1), Seskinane (25/1), Page Turner (25/1), Belclare Boy (25/1), Rosie Alice (25/1), Shamiran (28/1)

Verdict
Notwhatiam produced something of a shock on handicap debut to score over C&D last time out, he's respected in the follow-up attempt and will take a hand in proceedings should his mood be the same but a 10lb might be enough to soften his cough for now. Mine Now went very close at Punchestown last time and knows how to win round here but a 5lb rise for finishing second is plenty punishment. WISHMOOR has some potential to do well on his handicap hurdle debut, he's a former Punchestown bumper scorer and has shaped nicely enough in his previous jumping attempts. Seskinane needs to rediscover his best but would be a threat if doing so while last time out winner Concordin is also due respect stepping up in trip. Belclare Boy can do better than his handicap hurdle bow over C&D last month where he was pulled up. 1. Wishmoor 2. Concordin 3. Mine Now
