Forecast

Se Mo Laoch (9/2), Gunfire Reef (5/1), Cresus De Grissay (5/1), Golden Jewel (6/1), The Trigger (13/2), Tyrrell's Succes (12/1), Bosco Di Alco (12/1), Don't Let Go (12/1), Mtada Supreme (12/1), I'm An Izz Wizz (14/1), Asitsohappens (14/1), Nomanbehind (14/1), Duke Cass (16/1), Sweet As A Nut (16/1), Oscar Lantern (20/1), Capture The Drama (25/1), Witness Of Fashion (33/1)

Verdict
SE MO LAOCH has been getting ever closer to an elusive first win over fences and after an excellent second at Galway latest he has the strongest claims in a relatively ordinary handicap. Not far behind him at Galway was Gunfire Reef and Mags Mullins' chaser looks to be on the up of late so is a genuine danger now especially given he is 3lb better off with the selection. Also considered is recent Wexford runner-up Cresus De Grissay who is very unexposed and from a respected stable.
  1. Se Mo Laoch
  2. Gunfire Reef
  3. Cresus De Grissay
