Forecast

Neddyvaughan (11/4), Oighear Dubh (4/1), Tomcoole Lad (6/1), Double Portrait (8/1), Bellgrove (8/1), Hitdroadjack (8/1), Old Supporter (12/1), Better B Quick (14/1), My Hometown (14/1), Coolmill (20/1)

Verdict
OIGHEAR DUBH has been in consistent form over fences since mid-summer and ran well over hurdles at Clonmel this month. He sports first-time cheekpieces here and, 3lb lower than his Kelso second over fences last month, is fancied to have a big say. The veteran Tomcoole Lad was allowed to dictate when winning at Galway last month and may not be afforded that now while Ballinrobe winner Double Portrait is another to consider. Neddyvaughan should also throw his hat in the ring back over fences.
  1. Oighear Dubh
  2. Double Portrait
  3. Neddyvaughan
