Forecast

Minella Melody (9/10), Carrigmoorna Pine (6/1), Miss Pernickety (7/1), Saint Benedict (8/1), Jack Hackett (12/1), Full Time Score (14/1), Kalli's Quest (14/1), Rewritetherules (14/1), Solo Cargo (25/1), Getaway Totherock (33/1), Oscar Bonnie (40/1)

Verdict
Minella Melody was highly impressive when landing her point-to-point by 10L and she has since joined a top yard. She comes from a family of bumper winners and would be a worthy favourite.Saint Benedict was impressive at Rathcannon and Miss Pernickety represents a toptrainer/jockey combination. However, KALLI'S QUEST represents a yard who have successfully targetted this race in recent years and she has a lovely pedigree to match the quality of performance she produced to score at Dungarvan.
