Betting

Forecast

The Holy One (11/8), Stowie Belle (9/2), Generalisation (5/1), Mason Jar (6/1), Cadougarde (8/1), Edelweis De L'aube (10/1), Cahir Abbey Tavern (20/1), Doyen's Diva (25/1), Blackborow (25/1), Classic Escape (50/1), Ashton Court (50/1), Blackyellowred (50/1), Mossy White (50/1)

Verdict
The Henry De Bromhead-trained Generalisation could get an uncontested lead here in the early stages of the contest and could have a couple of these in trouble some way out. The early tactics though could play to the advantage of THE HOLY ONE who produced the best of his three runs in handicap company finishing third of 15 in a Leopardstown novice hurdle on St Stephens day. Mason Jar will be staying on later in proceedings to claim a place.
