Forecasts

Getabird (4/7), Ministerforsport (9/2), Articulum (8/1), Moon Over Germany (8/1), Mitchouka (12/1), Call A Cab (20/1), Portmore Lough (33/1), Monotype (40/1), Another Barney (40/1), Uisce Beatha (50/1), Art Of Security (66/1), Marakoush (100/1)

Verdict

GETABIRD couldn't follow in the footsteps of some of his illustrious stablemates by winning the Supreme Novices Hurdle but he nevertheless landed two Grade Twos in a stellar novice hurdle campaign yet he goes over fences with the suspicion that his best days still lie ahead. Providing a sound round of jumping he should win this en-route to bigger things. As usual Gordon Elliott provides the main threat to the Mullins-Walsh team with smart juvenile hurdler Mitchouka who has the ability to be smart himself if jumping better. Call A Cab appeals as being better over fences and is one who could make an impression at a bigger price.
  1. Getabird
  2. Mitchouka
  3. Call A Cab
