Forecasts

Bang Bang Rosie (13/8), Dortmund Park (3/1), Call A Cab (9/2), Thermistocles (5/1), Monstrosity (8/1), Catwalk King (10/1), Cote Tete (12/1), Falak (25/1), Dont Stop (50/1), Theatre World (66/1), Misty Hollow (66/1), Cappacon (66/1), Fr Gilligansvoyge (66/1), Drimsree Lad (66/1), Eusebius (100/1)

Verdict

The Gordon Elliott-trained Falak could make the pace in the early stages here with possibly Catwalk King for company and BIG BANG ROSIE not far off the pace on her second start for Willie Mullins following a 6½L victory last time out in November. The other Elliott runner Dortmund Park and the well-bred Call A Cab can give the selection the most to think about.
  1. Bang Bang Rosie
