Arctic Fire (11/8), Dr Mikey (3/1), Gusty Rocky (9/2), Sutton Manor (7/1), Flaxen Flare (8/1), Gangster (10/1), High Nellie (16/1), Whoyakodding (66/1)

Verdict

Officially rated 169 in his pomp for trainer-Willie Mullins, ARCTIC FIRE can still mix it with the best and remains on a handy mark here on second start for trainer Dennis Cullen. Winner of the Grade 1 Hattons Grace hurdle in November 2015 the nine-year-old should have enough to handle any potential challengers in this company. Guinness handicap hurdle fourth in the week at Galway, Dr Mikey, the Gordon Elliott-trained Flaxen Flare and Gangster can battle for the minors.
  1. Arctic Fire
  2. Dr Mikey
  3. Gangster
