Forecast

Ice Cool Champs (5/2), Another Emotion (10/3), Fortunate George (9/2), Loose Chips (11/2), Holly Bush Henry (7/1), Mellow Ben (15/2), Eminent Poet (14/1), Volt Face (20/1), Little Boy Boru (25/1), Lieutenant Colonel (40/1)

Verdict
LITTLE BOY BORU has been off the track for two years but is very interesting if ready to go and can provide a welcome winner for his trainer. No doubt Ice Cool Champs will be happier now back hurdling and Eminent Poet, another who will relish the ground makes up the short list.
  1. Little Boy Boru
  2. Ice Cool Champs
  3. Eminent Poet
