Forecasts

Ballyegan Hero (11/4), Torrent Des Mottes (3/1), Naturally Blond (9/2), Ballybryan (7/1), Black Franks Angel (10/1), Double Windsor (10/1), Bulls Head (14/1), Swordfight (20/1), Chase The Clouds (33/1), Harmoney Row (33/1), Mister Buddy (66/1), Eau De Horse (100/1)

Verdict

The form Black Franks Angel showed behind Augusta Kate in November would entitle her to serious claims, but she has rather failed to back it up since and so is not viable as a selection for now, though she clearly has ability. The Mullins newcomer Torrent Des Mottes is greatly respected and if the money comes, will surely be capable of having a massive say but, on form, BALLYEGAN HERO sets a decent benchmark and he's already run well over this C&D so can be trusted seemingly to give his running. Double Windsor has also gone well around here before and while not one to be easily trusted, has the tools to win a race of this nature.
  1. Ballyegan Hero
