Forecast

Glenwood For Ever (4/1), Na Trachtalai Abu (11/2), Fergiethelegend (6/1), El Vasco (6/1), Artic Pearl (7/1), Enniskillen (8/1), Burndown (10/1), Anseanachai Cliste (12/1), Stonehall Jack (20/1), On The Shannon (20/1), Tom Horn (33/1)

Verdict
Glenwood For Ever posted a promising effort on debut for Noel Meade recently (despite being disqualified) and will be a threat if building on that. That was off the back a long layoff and, just 16 days later, the dreaded bounce factor is a concern. Equally, Wexford winner Fergiethelegend is no sure thing to reproduce that effort this evening. Artic Pearl has a decent record here (despite fall very early on last time) and should challenge if none the worse but he might struggle to confirm earlier placings with EL VASCO from a beginners' chase at Leopardstown. The selection goes up in trip now sent handicapping and should have more to give on just his fifth chase.
  1. El Vasco
  2. Artic Pearl
  3. Glenwood For Ever
