Forecast

All's Quiet (11/4), Draycott Place (9/2), Hugo 'n Taz (5/1), Fleurys Fort (11/2), Graineyhill (11/2), Weather Watch (10/1), Girly Girl (14/1), Paris Snow (16/1)

Verdict
The Denis Hogan-trained HUGO 'N TAZ can continue his improvement in this contest landing the spoils on handicap debut following the geldings win in a Ballinrobe maiden hurdle in May 10L ahead of Friday's winner at Downpatrick, Touch Base. All's Quiet and the Gordon Elliott-trained top weight, Graineyhill can hit the frame.
  1. Hugo 'n Taz
  2. All's Quiet
  3. Graineyhill
