Forecasts

Sizing Titanium (7/2), Wild Sam (5/1), Ard Na Carraig (11/2), Roja Dove (6/1), Thereisnodoubt (7/1), Back Bar (7/1), Tornado Watch (8/1), Pound A Stroke (8/1), Easy Pass (8/1), The Mooch (14/1), Wade Harper (20/1), Archie Meade (25/1), Mister Hotelier (25/1)

Verdict

The eager Pound A Stroke can be expected to set the pace here albeit in the soft to heavy ground with possibly Back Bar, The Reisnodoubt and Easy Pass chasing behind. SIZING TITANIUM is clearly capable of holding his own on his return to hurdling here with Ard Na Carraig and the Peter Fahey-trained Roja Dove hitting the frame.
