Verdict

A race in which relatively few can be considered. Crack On Corrie has yet to sample success, but looks progressive at her own level and could be capable of making the frame if slightly sharper for her recent Listowel return, whilst Sligo maiden hurdle winner Movingswiftlyalong shouldn't be hastily dismissed on her handicap debut with ground conditions to suit. However, the pair to concentrate upon are the well handicapped (over hurdles) Eiri Na Casca, and Saturday's Listowel winner GRANNY BIDDY. A very marginal preference is for the latter given her recent new found improvement, but she'll need to be at the top of her game to repel the impossibly named Denis Hogan trained eight-year-old who himself appears to be a winner waiting to happen.
  1. Granny Biddy
  2. Eiri Na Casca
  3. Crack On Corrie
