Forecast

Sometimes A Fox (2/1), Freedom Chimes (2/1), Itsalonglongroad (5/1), Thomas O'Malley (5/1), Whereyounow (16/1), I've Got Rhythm (20/1), Presenting Point (20/1), Sunshineandshowers (33/1)

Verdict
ITSALONGLONGROAD was still in contention when falling two on his second start over timber. The four-year-old is highly thought of at home and can lose his maiden tag here. Thomas O'Malley can give the selection the most to think about in this contest following on from three spins on the AW at Dundalk. The Mags Mullins-trained Freedom Chimes and the Gigginstown runner Sometimes A Fox can battle for third.
