Forecast

Monbeg Worldwide (11/10), Game Of War (5/2), Rakhine State (8/1), Hitdroadjack (10/1), Ellie Mac (10/1), Rathcannon (12/1), Reelingintheyears (16/1), Spring Hill (16/1), Queen Barack (20/1), Belle Helene (20/1), Countess Cathleen (25/1), Edification (25/1), The Graduate (25/1), Timmie Roe (33/1), Bold Frost (33/1), Ballinabearna (50/1), Nonameyet (50/1), Adolphius (50/1), Georgia Grace (66/1), Cracking Up (66/1), El Mono Verde (100/1)

Verdict

The drop to 2m is hardly a positive for MONBEG WORLDWIDE as he looks more of a staying type. However, his bumper form and sole start over hurdles put him head and shoulders above these. Game Of War was a fair fourth on his hurdling debut at Fairyhouse and holds place claims and stable companion Hitdroadjack needs to be monitored in the betting. Timmie Roe and Queen Barack are other each-way possibilities
  1. Monbeg Worldwide
  2. Game Of War
  3. Timmie Roe
