Forecast

Andalusa (6/5), Way Back Home (7/4), Rocky Shores (7/1), Great Vizier (12/1), Cloak Of Darkness (16/1), Flash De Clerval (16/1), Nathaniel's Dream (16/1), Swiss Cottage (25/1), Fallen Forest (33/1), Highway To Heaven (50/1), Volatile Lady (66/1), Imperial Choice (66/1), Zayriyan (80/1), Colenso (100/1), Deauville Society (100/1), Thefaithfulindian (100/1), Ten Bears (100/1), Loughmask Lad (100/1), Novel Character (100/1)

Verdict
There are a number of potential improvers in this field but ROCKY SHORES appeared to run very well on his first taste of hurdling and may prove to be a fair sort at this game. He is narrowly preffered to Andalusa who ran well but found a few too good when favourite at Punchestown last time. Way Back Home won't be far away, and Deauville Society and Highway To Heaven may do better this time, while hurdles debutants Cloak Of Darkness and Swiss Cottage are others worth keeping an eye on.
  1. Rocky Shores
  2. Andalusa
  3. Cloak Of Darkness
