Betting

Forecast

Stormy Ireland (2/7), Sometimes A Fox (5/1), Percy (8/1), Ontheiflist (14/1), North Carolina (25/1), Verse Of Love (25/1), Sil Ver Klass (50/1), State Of The Art (50/1), Buffalo Blues (50/1), Callthebarman (66/1), Ali's Girl (100/1)

Verdict
Given the running style on the Flat of Percy it is likely he may make the running on his own here with Buffalo Blues and Ontheiflist in behind. The Gordon Elliott-trained stable debutante Sometimes A Fox is sure to be popular in the market and could be one for the future but may have to play second-fiddle to French recruit STORMY ISLAND who makes his debut for Willie Mullins.
  1. Stormy Ireland
  2. Sometimes A Fox
  3. Percy
