Forecast

Graineyhill (9/4), Benefit Of Magic (5/1), Swift (5/1), Wee Small Hours (11/2), Smokey Joe Joe (6/1), Camile (14/1), Rock On Westie (20/1), Good To Flow (20/1), Cairnshill (25/1), Dorkas (25/1), Okey Dokey (50/1)

Verdict
GRAINEYHILL needs to produce a career best effort in order to record a second career success over hurdles, but there can be no denying that last month's ready Clonmel winner is on a steady upward curve. The handicapper keeps making life increasingly tougher for the Gordon Elliott trained seven-year-old, but this is a statement which is equally applicable to a few of the others including the last time out Navan winner Wee Small Hours. If there is to be a lightly raced sort who is ahead of the handicapper, it will be Benefit Of Magic, with the pre-race market moves surely most informative as to her likely chances of downing a sporting selection.
  1. Graineyhill
  2. Benefit Of Magic
  3. Wee Small Hours
