Forecast

Owl Creek Bridge (9/2), Madaboy Cross (9/2), It's A Long Story (6/1), Shar Whats Therush (8/1), Simple Steps (8/1), Ceatharlach (10/1), Olive D'Haguenet (10/1), Lagenod (12/1), Beale Beach (14/1), Sizing Joshua (16/1), Chapter Two (16/1), Father Jed (16/1), The B (22/1), Northern Emperor (25/1), Dont Tell Suellen (25/1), Our Native Land (33/1), Kansas Kid (33/1), Betterthanalright (33/1), Glenmalure Lodge (33/1)

Verdict
SIMPLE STEPS is a 101-rated chaser whose eighth of 20 beaten 23L at Cork earlier this month on first hurdle start in a while could be the key to landing the spoils in this contest. The Colin Bowe-trained Ceatharlach and It's A Long Story appear cable of hitting the target, while Madaboy Cross can go well at a price.
  1. Simple Steps
