Forecasts

High Sparrow (13/8), Kesselring (9/4), Caltex (11/4), Humm Baby (12/1), Percy Veer (16/1), Victoria Bay (25/1), On The Mend (25/1), Ger's Lad (33/1), Instant Decision (50/1)

Verdict

The Joseph O'Brien-trained HIGH SPARROW was always to the fore during his ¾L victory on rules debut at Limerick in December and could possibly attempt to repeat the feat on hurdling debut. Kesselring, fourth of 15 on debut here last month and Caltrex can give the selection the most to think about.
  1. High Sparrow
  2. Kesselring
