Forecast

Al Shahir (6/4), Ballymoy (11/4), Kalashnikov (4/1), Eskendash (8/1), Royal Flag (14/1), Jacbequick (16/1), Alfiboy (20/1), God Willing (33/1), Big Time Dancer (40/1), Instant Replay (66/1), Stay In Touch (100/1), Stoneboat Bill (100/1), Heather Burning (100/1), Bogardus (100/1), Hooves The Daddy (100/1), Miss Amelia (200/1), Calypso Delegator (200/1)

Verdict
Hurdling debutant Big Time Dancer may be the best of three runners from his yard, while cases can be made for bumper winner Kalashnikov, Alfiboy, Jackbequick and Eskendash. However, this may be fought out by Al Shahir and BALLYMOY, with the latter, who shaped with great promise in a bumper last time, sure to have been well prepared for his hurdling debut by his in-form stable.
  1. Ballymoy
  2. Al Shahir
  3. Kalashnikov
