Forecast

One Cool Poet (4/1), Oakmont (9/2), Moonball (5/1), Dontdooddson (7/1), Ciankyle (8/1), Buffalo Blues (9/1), Nulife (10/1), I'm Serious (11/1), Realta Dawn (11/1), Talsara (14/1), Jensen (14/1), Marino Marvel (14/1), Trenchtown Rock (14/1), Russellstown (16/1), Demi Plie (25/1), Zinat (33/1), Fly De Megaudais (33/1), Josie Wing (40/1), La Belle De Paris (50/1)

Verdict
A 6lb hike isn't certain to halt the ambitions of frontrunner Ciankyle, who did things nicely enough at Sligo last time out while Oakmont is also worth considering despite failing to land the odds at Bangor last time, given he races from a 6lb lower mark now. Tramore winner MOONBALL ran well enough under a patient ride next time at Kilbeggan, having gone up 9lb. He can be put in the race earlier have shown there is still likely further improvement to come and looks a decent contender. Dontdooddson and Talsara are other worth an interest.
