Forecast

Sharps Choice (4/5), Without Limites (11/4), Veneziano Springs (5/1), Clara Sorrento (9/1), Ballybryan (16/1), Goaheadmakemyday (25/1), Chesapeake (25/1), Ancient Empire (66/1), Lambs Lane (100/1), Kilganer Queen (100/1), Milestone Prince (100/1), Oskar High (100/1), Drakaina (100/1)

Verdict
SHARPS CHOICE was briefly outpaced over two-miles on hurdles bow at Thurles last month before staying on strongly and would have won given an extra stride. The step up in trip should suit on that evidence and the others will have to go some to stop him opening his account. Veneziano Springs upped his game considerably at this venue last month and should be involved again if repeating that effort. Without Limites also has some place claims on what he's shown this term while Clara Sorrento and Chesapeake may be capable of better than we've seen to date. 1. Sharps Choice 2. Veneziano Springs 3.
