Forecast

Makitorix (5/2), Rockabill (13/2), Apparition (8/1), High Expectations (12/1), Circling Moon (14/1), Wooster (14/1), Make It Hurrah (14/1), New Direction (16/1), Hey Little Boy (16/1), Bay Hill (20/1), Storm Rising (20/1), Crafted Jewel (20/1), Perfect Soldier (20/1), Father Ailbe (20/1), Trump Card (25/1), Archer's Up (25/1), Bibliotheca (25/1), Magic Sea (28/1), Paddy The Celeb (33/1), Harebell (33/1), Bobeska (50/1), Olive D'Haguenet (50/1), U S Navy Seal (66/1)

Verdict
MAKE IT HURRAH ran an excellent race when last seen on the flat at Galway where he was a close second in a big field and such form and experience should stand him in good stead here. New Direction ran well last time out at Navan and he looks likely to arrive here as he hits top form. Unexposed hurdler Makitorix is an intriguing contender for Willie Mullins.
  1. Make It Hurrah
  2. New Direction
  3. Makitorix
