Forecasts

Market's Field (11/8), King Blue (9/2), Open To The World (9/2), Sir Ector (6/1), Small World (6/1), Kennedys Mor (7/1), Benkei (10/1), Seskinane (12/1), Adimelo (14/1)

Verdict

MARKET'S FIELD can complete a hat-trick by taking this staying handicap hurdle. Trained by Enda Bolger the selection appeared to have a fair bit in hand when winning here last time out and can defy a 9lb rise in the weights today. Of his rivals here Small World has been a beaten favourite the last twice but can claim second here under leading jockey Ruby Walsh while Open To The World is another to consider on her handicap debut today.
