Forecast

Peace N' Milan (11/8), Zipporah (11/4), Leila's Island (11/2), The Conker Club (12/1), Ros Brin (12/1), One Can Cally (14/1), Cerca Trova (16/1), Rock On Rosie (16/1), Field Exhibition (20/1), Landofhopendreams (33/1), Sunset Flow (33/1), Crocosmia (40/1)

Verdict
Peace N' Milan took a giant step forward last time out at Down Royal to open her account and must be respected in the follow up attempt despite carrying a penalty. Zipporah meanwhile grasped the initiative to score from the front at this venue a fortnight ago. She's not entirely reliable but demands respect if in similar form now. LEILA'S ISLAND was having just her fourth starts over flights when second of 18 on her handicap hurdle bow at Thurles last month. She drops in trip and can go one better off just 4lb higher in this. Any market support behind Cerca Trova would be worth noting given the sort of form she was in prior to a year off while The Conker Club may bounce back after a below par effort at Thurles recently. 1. Leila's Island 2. Zipporah 3. Peace N' Milan
