Forecast

Mister Blue Sky (9/10), Room To Roam (11/2), Les Arceaux (6/1), Everybreathyoutake (8/1), Put The Kettle On (10/1), Rock On Dandy (14/1), Roney (16/1), Party Playboy (25/1), Janeymac (50/1), Dragon Phoenix (50/1), French Furze (50/1), Uffizy (50/1), Sir Pimpernel (100/1), Autumn Berry (100/1), Musk Mallow (100/1)

Verdict
He's been off for a while, but MISTER BLUE SKY was a pretty useful handicapper on the Flat for Sylvester Kirk, and should be up to winning on his hurdles debut for Willie Mullins. Les Arceaux is a danger on form, but has questions to answer after running poorly last time, and perhaps Everybreathyoutake will develop into a bigger danger.
  1. Mister Blue Sky
  2. Everybreathyoutake
  3. Les Arceaux
