Forecasts

Double Island (6/4), Double Scores (10/3), Goulane Chosen (7/2), Kilcarry Bridge (7/1), Dollar And A Dream (12/1), Game Puppeteer (16/1), The Canny Man (33/1), Shrewdoperator (50/1)

Verdict

Double Island was running a decent contest when coming down at the final obstacle last time out and should give this a bold bid if standing up but preference is for likely market rival DOUBLE SCORES. He ran well when second at Down Royal at the end of January and can get off the mark over fences if building on that. Kilcarry Bridge, winner over fences in November, should be competitive again now going over the larger obstacles once more while Dollar And A Dream may be best of the race despite his failure to complete over fences as yet. 1. Double Scores 2. Double Island 3. Kilcarry Bridge
