Betting

Forecast

Classic Theatre (5/4), Ask Susan (3/1), Thirsty Work (11/2), Consharon Boy (6/1), Big Bad Brian (8/1), Imperial Way (14/1), Triolet (33/1), Marakoush (33/1)

Verdict
The Henry De Bromhead-trained CLASSIC THEATER went well on chasing debut at Clonmel last month when finishing fourth of 14 before winning a Limerick beginners contest earlier this month and can fight off the attentions of Ask Susan who was beaten a nose in her first novice chase at Wexford two weeks ago and potential improver Consharon Boy. Any market moves for Thirsty Work or Imperial Way should be noted.
  1. Classic Theatre
  2. Ask Susan
  3. Consharon Boy
