Forecasts

Caliption (7/2), An'ball (7/2), Jefferson Davis (4/1), Big Bad Brian (5/1), Cloudy Morning (8/1), Cote Tete (9/1), Kilbrew Gold (10/1), Rossmore's Pride (20/1), Kalamkan (33/1), Drummullagh Rocky (33/1), Ashbourne Allstar (66/1)

Verdict

With plenty of those with chase experience out of form it may pay to follow chasing debutantes' with the Gordon Elliott-trained CALIPTION taken to get off the mark on stable debut. Modest hurdling performers An'ball, the Denis Hogan-trained Big Bad Brian and another Gigginstown House Stud runner Cote Tete can fight for the minor honours.
  1. Caliption
  2. An'ball
  3. Cote Tete
