Forecast

Allaho (5/2), Western Victory (4/1), Capuccimix (5/1), Swordsman (5/1), Minella Indo (8/1), Moskovite (8/1), Eurobot (8/1), Cool Saint (10/1), Vanellope (25/1)

Verdict
Trainer Denis Hogan could have a decent improving mare on his hands with MOSKOVITE who comes here on a hat trick of wins following success at Navan and Limerick in December after a fine second of nine behind Honeysuckle at Fairyhouse. The daughter of Flemensfirth can continue her development in this Grade 3 contest at the expense of The Willie Mullins-trained Allaho with the yard boasting a solid 47% strike rate in the last three years at the track in the month of February. Capuccimix, Swordsman and Western Victory could ensure a competitive confrontation.
  1. Moskovite
  2. Allaho
  3. Swordsman
