Forecast

Josies Orders (5/4), Ballycasey (4/1), Hurricane Darwin (8/1), A Sizing Network (8/1), Behind Time (12/1), Devils Bride (16/1), Home Farm (16/1), Mtada Supreme (25/1), Bay Of Freedom (33/1), Alpha Male (33/1), Ballinasilla (66/1), King's Song (100/1), Enniskillen (100/1), Lighting Tunes (100/1), Like A Demon (100/1), Festival Opera (100/1)

Verdict
Crack Cross Country performer JOSIES ORDERS makes easily the most appeal here and gets the vote to add a 10th career score. Ballycasey wasn't far behind him at Cheltenham last time out in his first such race and has the proven class to prove the biggest threat. Hurricane Darwin wasn't far behind the selection a couple of times last season and is now better off at the weights so another with realistic chances.
  1. Josies Orders
  2. Ballycasey
  3. Hurricane Darwin
