Forecast

Thereisnodoubt (9/4), Cappuccino Man (6/1), Glendaars Warrior (7/1), She's Made It (7/1), Eviscerating (10/1), Leave Your Mark (10/1), Empire Burleque (10/1), Commandant (12/1), Lake Malawi (14/1), Coral Blue (16/1), Rathbride Prince (16/1), Captain Courageous (16/1), William of Wykeham (16/1), Wade Harper (20/1), Liclash (25/1), Write It Down (25/1), Tashman (33/1), Skeaping (33/1), Trenchtown Rock (33/1), Roachdale House (33/1), Punches Pious (50/1), Easy Cash D'Alex (50/1), Opportunity Knox (50/1)

Verdict
There is a strong possibility of the Gordon Elliott-trained EMPIRE BURLEQUE could be up with the leaders in the early stages of this competitive contest keeping out of trouble and making the most of jockey Kevin Brogan's claim following a promising third of 12 over this trip at Punchestown last month off a similar mark. The Shane Crawley-trained Thereisnodoubt will attempt to defy an 11lb rise for a win in a Clonmel handicap hurdle last month but can transpire to be a main danger along with potential improver Leave Your Mark and Trenchtown Rock who can go well at a price.
  1. Empire Burleque
  2. Thereisnodoubt
  3. Leave Your Mark
