Forecast

Allez Dance (2/1), Galilean (9/4), Timber House (4/1), Top Of The Charts (11/1), City Limits (16/1), Cray (16/1), Try Dollys Sister (25/1), Alcatraz (40/1), Elusive Star (50/1), Laureate (50/1), Short Story Long (50/1), John Honeyman (50/1), Monatierna (50/1), Pat Coyne (66/1), Dicey (66/1), Lady Magdala (100/1), Inchidaly Breeze (100/1), Master Of None (200/1)

Verdict
Not much to go on from those with hurdling experience as the form in the book looks unreliable at present. Therefore, it can worth chancing a small investment in TIMBER HOUSE, who went for €100,000 after winning a point-to-point in good style when last seen. Allez Dance has plenty of experience to draw from after her spell in France and, as she represents such a high profile yard, the mare has to be respected in this modest company. Laureate and Galilien are the most interesting recruits from the Flat. The latter was seen in Listed company on the level but wasn't the most accomplished on his hurdles debut and needs to jump more fluently this time.
  1. Timber House

  3. Laureate
