Forecast

Ornua (15/8), Vanishing Point (9/4), Howluckycanwebe (8/1), King's War (9/1), Comber Mill (10/1), Colwinston (10/1), Shalaman (12/1), Probing (22/1), Mistamel (25/1), Dublin Road (25/1), Toccata Blue (25/1), Dovil's Duel (33/1), Westinmare (33/1), Celebrity Status (33/1), Piranto (40/1), Royal Chorus (40/1), Hatters Hero (50/1), Invincible Zeb (50/1), Boals Corner (50/1), Sillogue Pio (50/1), Sierra Law (50/1), Romantic (66/1), Oromo (66/1)

Verdict

Ornua possibly didn't enjoy the heavy ground at Limerick in December and has been off since, this better surface and the drop in trip should assist his case. On Flat form, Shalaman is one to consider ahead of this jumps bow and he is worth paying attention to in the market while Vanishing Point may be most likely of the Elliott contenders as he starts all over again following his trainers' title disappointment. KING'S WAR drops back to 2m and has twice finished second over this distance already, he may be able to go one better now. Comber Mill and Colwinston are others to consider in a wide open contest.
  1. King's War
  2. Ornua
  3. Shalaman
