Forecasts

Al Boum Photo (1/2), Tombstone (7/2), Arbre De Vie (10/1), Tout Est Permis (11/1), Dounikos (14/1), Inis Meain (33/1)

Verdict

It looks a Willie Mullins/Gordon Elliott head-to-head here with the trainers saddling four of the six runners between them. Dounikos likes to get on with things from the front and he can give TOMBSTONE a decent toe in to the race following his defection from a Grade 1 Leopardstown contest on Friday. Al Boum Photo was impressive enough on chasing debut and will have to improve again to be the biggest danger to the selection.
  1. Tombstone
  2. Al Boum Photo
  3. Dounikos
