Forecasts

Moyross (5/4), Suncroft (13/8), Creadan Grae (13/2), Riverrainshine (12/1), The Rap Queen (18/1), Nomanbehind (20/1), Trump Sixteen (33/1), Kool Lady (50/1), Call Of The Loon (66/1), Manhatton Island (66/1), Ventura Boulevard (66/1), Leah's Little Star (100/1)

Verdict

Hurdling newcomers Moyross and Suncroft are much respected, with the former's trainer in flying form lately, and it won't be a surprise to see one or both going well in this contest. Fitness and experience jumping these flights sways the vote in favour of CREADAN GRAE, who was second last time at Down Royal and is a more assured stayer at this stage in his development. The Rap Queen is also worth considering having gained useful experience over the last month.
  1. Creadan Grae
