Forecasts

Cereal Killer (5/4), Al Dancer (5/1), Duc Kauto (5/1), The Dubai Way (6/1), O'Hanrahan Bridge (10/1), Overworkdunderpaid (14/1), Heaven Dream (16/1), Sartene's Son (20/1), Fiscal Space (25/1), Blue Kangaroo (25/1), Chimes Of Dylan (33/1), Rolling Along (50/1), Faint Hope (50/1), Hitchhiker (66/1)

Verdict

Probably a decent bumper with several of the new newcomers looking likely types on breeding, including Kauto Star's relative, Duc Kauto, and Richard Johnson's mount Al Dancer. Preference though is for Paul Nicholls' CEREAL KILLER who has shown real promise in emphatically winning two Irish point-to-points on soft ground. Fellow Irish pointing recruits O'Hanrahan Bridge and Overworkdunderpaid would also be of interest if the money arrives.
  1. Cereal Killer
  2. Al Dancer
  3. O'Hanrahan Bridge
