Forecast

Knockraha Pylon (15/8), Blazing West (7/2), Monbeg Rose (11/2), Zipporah (6/1), Routes Choice (8/1), Head Turner (8/1), Floral Fantasy (11/1), Leaders Questions (12/1), Hide The Biscuit (14/1), Balofilo (25/1), Marygale Bridge (25/1), Roisin A Chroi (33/1), Micras (50/1), Coral Pearl (200/1)

Verdict

BLAZING WEST put up her best showing over fences at Clonmel last month to be second, she has plenty experience in her locker and has been getting the hang of things. She is fit having run over hurdles since and appears to have a fair chance of taking this contest. Monbeg Rose unseated her rider last time at Fairyhouse but would be a real threat now if getting around in one piece. Knockraha Pylon clearly has ability but she isn't prone to showing it with great consistency and is overlooked on that basis. Head Turner and Zipporah, both new to chasing, are interesting while Routes Choice could be capable of an improved effort.
  1. Blazing West
  2. Monbeg Rose
  3. Routes Choice
