Forecast

Uradel (9/2), Jetez (13/2), Eclair De Beaufeu (7/1), Wonder Laish (7/1), Off You Go (8/1), Try Again (10/1), Tudor City (12/1), Hearts Are Trumps (14/1), Jezki (16/1), Ivanovich Gorbatov (16/1), Sayar (16/1), Due Reward (20/1), Cartwright (20/1), Blazer (25/1), Campeador (25/1), Free Ranger (33/1), Tully East (33/1), Mitchouka (40/1), Twobeelucky (50/1)

Verdict
Wonder Laish is the starting point and comes here thriving but he's now up a whopping 25lb since he kicked off this winter spree. He looks to have more in him, and could win again, but the market hasn't missed him. Tudor City (second) and Hearts Are Trumps (fourth) ran well behind him last time and are considered. Campeador and Mitchouka could go well back in this sphere while Uradel was still going well at Galway in the summer when brought down on his previous hurdles start. ECLAIR DE BEAUFEU is learning fast and had plenty in hand at Fairyhouse recently. Gordon Elliott's charge dips into handicapping off 130 and could have a big shout.
  1. Eclair De Beaufeu
  2. Wonder Laish
  3. Uradel
