Forecast

Cubomania (9/4), Azua Emery (5/2), Urbanist (11/4), Brosna George (4/1), Mick The Boyo (5/1), Rossmore's Pride (8/1), Dundeedy Lad (14/1), Hows Patsy (18/1), Just Call Me (20/1), Punches Pious (25/1), Pride Of Kildare (33/1), Luddenmore (40/1)

Verdict
How's Patsy and Azua Emery could cut out the running between them in the early stages of this contest and such a dual could set the race up for the Gordon Elliott-trained CUBOMANIA who comes here in the best of form and on a hat-trick. Last time out winner Urbanist and soft to heavy ground victor Mick The Boyo can hit the frame.
  1. Cubomania
  2. Urbanist
  3. Mick The Boyo
