Forecast

Goodthynemilan (4/1), Burndown (9/2), Fenlon's Hill (5/1), Dorkas (6/1), Gunfire Reef (6/1), Jack The Wire (7/1), Bosco Di Alco (10/1), Cecil Corbett (12/1), B C's Pride (12/1), Quiet Account (16/1), Capture The Drama (20/1), Archie Meade (20/1)

Verdict
The Henry De Bromhead-trained BURNDOWN can take the contest here for Gigginstown House Stud building on a couple of substantial handicap chase performances at Punchestown and Kilbeggan recently. Dorkas was a C&D winner here last month in a handicap chase on good ground beating 12 rivals ½L and can put up another bold show despite 6lb hike for the win while the gutsy Quiet Account and Gunfire Reef a third of 14 here last month can duel for the remaining place.
  1. Burndown
  2. Quiet Account
  3. Gunfire Reef
