Forecast

Swingbridge (3/1), White Arm (4/1), Flynsini (4/1), A Hardy Nailer (8/1), Une Lavandiere (10/1), Fire In His Eyes (10/1), Toubaloo (12/1), Clontarf (14/1), Georges Conn (16/1), Zekarya (16/1), Capture The Drama (20/1), Stoughan Cross (20/1), Fergiethelegend (25/1)

Verdict
Last year's winner of this race Capture The Drama will possibly try and make all here with A Hardy Nailer, Fire In His Eyes and Swingbridge chasing behind. The finish could be a repeat of the Punchestown handicap hurdle last month won by the holding-on White Arm in a pulsating battle with FLYNSINI a head behind, who is taken to reverse the placings here.
  1. Flynsini
  2. White Arm
  3. A Hardy Nailer
