Successor (6/5), Ri An Rian (6/1), Tommy Welsh (13/2), Polymath (7/1), Nellie Pledge (8/1), Cloudy Day (14/1), Baltimore Buzz (14/1), Kitty B (16/1), Internal Transfer (20/1), Just Another Lady (50/1), Raising Cain (50/1), Pound A Stroke (66/1)

Verdict

TOMMY WELSH ran well when finishing fifth on his debut over hurdles at Roscommon last month and he can get off the mark at the second time of asking in this sphere for trainer Joseph O'Brien. Successor, a stablemate of the selection can claim second here having run at Galway last week while point-to-point winner Polymath can take third.
