Forecast

Narcissistic (6/4), Castle North (10/3), Baily Gorse (7/2), Invincible Cave (4/1), The Red Menace (4/1), The Longest Time (12/1), Kilbeg Bernie (50/1), Go Hard Or Go Home (100/1), Buckbasil (100/1)

Verdict
The drop in trip went against NARCISSISTIC last time and upped to 3m here he could be a tough nut to crack. Castle North disappointed in bumpers but his powerful yard should find the key to him sooner or later. The Red Menace is improving which each run and gives Noel Meade a strong hand in this race.
  1. Narcissistic
  2. Castle North
  3. The Red Menace
