Forecasts

Sympa Des Flos (6/4), Chatham Street Lad (4/1), Shaw's Cross (13/2), Cowboy Des Long (8/1), Trainwreck (11/1), Isodon (14/1), Dicey O'reilly (14/1), Port Rashid (20/1), Celebrity Status (20/1), Canyon D'ahaut (20/1), Veneziano Springs (25/1), Banno (25/1), Aughnamaulmeen (66/1), Lagenod (100/1), Love N' Peace (100/1), Johnnyonepunch (100/1), Tricky Question (100/1)

Verdict

Hardly a competitive maiden hurdle and one that should be within the scope of SYMPA DES FLOS representing the Mullins/Walsh/Ricci connection. The French import took them along at a good clip at Downpatrick and, with that run under his belt and over a shorter trip, he can expose the limitations of many of these. Shaw's Cross appears the main threat given the promise shown on his here last month, whilst Trainwreck has plenty of scope and looks a future winner over further.
  1. Sympa Des Flos
  2. Shaw's Cross
  3. Trainwreck
