Forecasts

Woodland Opera (4/5), O Ceallaigh (11/2), Pyromaniac (7/1), Delegate (7/1), Spider Web (12/1), Black Zambezi (16/1), Fitzhenry (16/1), Definite Earl (50/1), Dangerous Games (66/1), Hatch Hall (66/1), The Drunken Dr (66/1), Rancher Lass (100/1), Sheila's Steps (100/1)

Verdict

Woodland Opera has the profile to take a contest such as this and his effort at Leopardstown last month makes him a standout candidate to just that while O Ceallaigh is another that merits consideration after a decent showing at Thurles last time out. Delegate represents the Elliott team, though he may ultimately do better when there's less give in the ground. PYROMANIAC made a solid start to his chasing career over this C&D in February and should improve for the experience, giving him every chance of success now. Fitzhenry is also expected to improve dropping in trip after a decent effort at Gowran Park on his first chase start.
  1. Pyromaniac
  2. Woodland Opera
  3. Fitzhenry
