Forecast

She's Made It (11/10), Grand Canyon (4/1), Time And Times (5/1), Vocal Heir (9/1), Chosen Flower (14/1), La Regle (16/1), Berkeley Byron (16/1), Auction Reminder (20/1), Turpin Tale (20/1), Caridadi (20/1), Trendsetter (25/1), Dragon Queen (33/1)

Verdict
She's Made It showed improved form to make the frame at Tramore and then Wexford in the spring and is respected, though she has struggled for a change of gear and might be vulnerable in that regard. GRAND CANYON put up a better effort over timber at Sligo last August under Paul Townend and, having won on the Flat this year, could have more to say back over jumps. He's worth a chance in what doesn't look a strong race. Time And Times may have needed the run at Listowel and should improve while handicap debutant La Regle is worth a look back from a break. Vocal Heir could have place claims if repeating last month's Sligo run (poor since).
