Forecasts

Leader's Choice (3/1), Strike Is Back (9/2), Black Franks Angel (9/2), High Nellie (5/1), Ardean Lass (5/1), All In The Head (11/1), Marienstar (12/1), Kilganer Queen (20/1), Mary Frances (25/1), Urban Star (33/1), Kilbarry Cushty (33/1), Queen Khaleesi (33/1), Princess Mahler (33/1), Castleonthehill (50/1), Emmas Dolly (50/1), Dazz The Dreamer (66/1), Galloping Anger (100/1)

Verdict

Strike Is Back improved for her second start at Navan last month and should go well here with her trainer having enjoyed a fine week at Cheltenham. She also brings Ardean Lass into the picture now stepped up in trip. Leader's Choice has been running nicely of late, though the drop in trip is a concern while the experienced High Nellie has become a frustrating sort now. BLACK FRANKS ANGEL got within 7L of Augusta Kate on her only previous try over hurdles and can put that experience to good use now back over these obstacles. Newcomer Kilbarry Cushty is one to monitor in the betting after a good point-to-point showing recently.
  1. Black Franks Angel
