Forecast

Go Another One (5/2), Boston Spray (3/1), Dinons (5/1), Qui Bono (5/1), Cemister (6/1), Easy Gold (8/1), Tipp Toe (16/1), Sizing Joshua (16/1), Yeats Mardy (20/1), Glasson Lad (25/1), Caerleon Kate (33/1), Arizengo (33/1), Michael James (50/1), The Day Is Done (66/1), Dance The Rapids (80/1), Devon Knows (100/1)

Verdict
QUI BONO was narrowly beaten in a similar race to this last time out and a repeat of that can see him take what looks a competitive staying novice hurdle. Boston Spray, who finished one place behind the selection at Wexford can claim second ahead of Cemister who is making his hurdling debut. Go Another One who has some solid maiden hurdle form to his name and Yeats Mardy who should improve over this trip are others to note.
  1. Qui Bono
  2. Boston Spray
  3. Cemister
