Forecast

No Secrets Here (11/4), Artical Eleven (3/1), Monastic (11/2), Julie's Luck (7/1), Karkadann (9/1), Ballinahow Bill (10/1), Bold Sky (12/1), Yes Pat (25/1), Oh'herewego (25/1), Jessicor (25/1), Niamh's Wish (40/1), Sheila's Steps (50/1), Shantelle (66/1)

Verdict
These are a modest-looking bunch on paper for the opener, based on what they've done so far at any rate. No Secrets Here made a fair start over timber at Killarney recently and can be given a chance of building on that effort now over a longer trip while Julie's Luck has scope for better on third hurdles start having shown some promise over C&D last time. Bold Sky comes from a leading yard and might perform better on the likely better surface but, given the uninspiring nature of his rivals, it might pay to give YES PAT a chance of scoring first time over hurdles on his return to action. He showed some ability in bumpers last summer and is making a first for this trainer now. Monastic has not impressed so far for the Elliott team, but may struggle to find a better opportunity than this.
  1. Yes Pat
  2. Julie's Luck
  3. Bold Sky
