Forecast

Cappacon (5/1), Cailean's Angel (5/1), Time Is Time (11/2), Courtin Bb (11/2), Oskar High (8/1), Glamorous Nellie (9/1), Northern Emperor (10/1), Glamorous Gold (14/1), Realta Rathcabhain (16/1), In Our Blood (25/1), Boston Babe (33/1), Brog Deas Nua (33/1), Cloneen Lady (33/1), Bombay Basil (33/1), Qery (40/1), Vinabell (50/1)

Verdict
Sligo winner, Cappacon is sure to have plenty of supporters following his fine win last month, but he will face stiff opposition from TIME IS TIME who deservedly got off the mark at the 10th time of asking for connections over hurdles in a Kilbeggan 2m4f handicap last month off a 5lb lower mark following a good second of 13 at Ballinrobe earlier. Patrick Duffy's mare Courtin Bb and Cailean's Angel are capable of hitting the frame.
