Forecast

Ballyoisin (8/1), Low Sun (9/1), Ben Dundee (10/1), Ten Ten (10/1), True Self (12/1), Articulum (12/1), Dis Donc (12/1), Joey Sasa (14/1), Nessun Dorma (14/1), Lagostovegas (14/1), Western Boy (14/1), Golden Spear (14/1), Bunk Off Early (14/1), Morgan (16/1), Chesterfield King (20/1), Housesofparliament (20/1), Light That (25/1), Duca De Thaix (25/1), Veinard (25/1), Pietralunga (25/1), Grand Partner (25/1), Pete So High (25/1), Carrig Cathal (28/1), Ivanovich Gorbatov (33/1), High School Days (33/1), Icario (33/1), Tara Dylan (33/1), Tigris River (50/1)

Verdict
Low Sun was impressive in scoring at Fairyhouse a week ago but that run appeared to take connections by surprise and he's perhaps vulnerable now under an 8lb hike. Joey Sasa has the form to be in the mix and warmed up with an AW win, while stablemate Dis Donc comes into the equation after a fine effort on handicap debut last time out at Navan. That form also bodes well for TOP TEN, who beat the Meade runner in winning a maiden hurdle at Down Royal in November and is potentially on a decent mark here. Similar comments apply to the filly Pietralunga on her handicap debut for the Mullins team while Articulum is given a chance back down in journey.
  1. Ten Ten
  2. Joey Sasa
  3. Pietralunga
