Forecasts

Ticket To Ride (15/8), Allduckornodinner (6/1), Lisclogher Lad (7/1), Quiet Account (8/1), Bard Of Armagh (9/1), Witness Of Fashion (10/1), Bective Cave (11/1), Canadian Steel (12/1), Coolnagorna Giggs (12/1), Milanesque (16/1), Drummullagh Rocky (20/1), Shaluna (25/1), Taboo (33/1)

Verdict

A tough one to call as doubts can be cast over every runner in the filed. Ticket To Ride is likely to be popular on his debut for Gordon Elliot and is respected accordingly. However, his form is nothing special and may be worth taking on this time around. Taboo has the ability to figure and shouldn't be underestimated despite being out of the handicap, while Coolnagorna Giggs and Bective Cave are others who can figure in a weak event like this. However, QUIET ACCOUNT has some decent winning form to his name in point-to-points and may be worth another throw of the dice here.
  1. Quiet Account
  2. Taboo
