Forecast

Monbeg Chit Chat (4/1), Peregrine Run (6/1), Bel Ami De Sivola (13/2), Alisier D'irlande (7/1), Steel Wave (8/1), Grand Partner (8/1), Coeur Joyeux (10/1), Shanpallas (12/1), Full Cry (12/1), Killaro Boy (14/1), Supreme Vinnie (14/1), Product Of Love (16/1), The West's Awake (16/1), Kilcarry Bridge (20/1)

Verdict
MONBEG CHIT CHAT got off the mark over fences at the sixth time of asking for connections but the Kayf Tara gelding has improved of late going on to win again at Tipperary last month and the seven-year-old can land the hat-trick here. The solid and consistent Ailisier D'Irlande can give his stablemate the most to think about in the contest, while lightly raced chaser Grand Partner and Supreme Vinnie can dual for the remaining place.
  1. Monbeg Chit Chat
  2. Alisier D'Irlande
  3. Grand Partner
