Forecasts

Acclamatio (15/8), Paris Texas (4/1), Due Reward (9/2), Star Maker (6/1), A Place Apart (6/1), Party Playboy (11/1), Howluckycanwebe (22/1), Thomas O'Malley (33/1)

Verdict

PARIS TEXAS dips into handicap company for the first time on the back of some consistent efforts and an opening mark of 119 may be within the wheelhouse of Downpatrick maiden hurdle scorer. Due Reward would surely have gone close to the hat-trick at Cork bar a fall and is respected having been given time to get over that mishap while A Place Apart has won over hurdles and fences recently and is another with a big chance for trainer Gavin Cromwell, who is thriving this term.
  1. Paris Texas
  2. Due Reward
  3. A Place Apart
