Forecast

An Fraoch Mor (13/8), Darver Star (5/2), Stones And Roses (5/1), Megalomaniac (6/1), Tapenade (11/1), Trees Valley (16/1), Clear Left (20/1), Caddy Shack (66/1), Mangan Julia (66/1), Araukan (100/1), Lady Sue (100/1)

Verdict
Promising fourth of nine - behind Ballymore winner City Island - on hurdling debut in a Naas 2m3f maiden last month, AN FRAOCH MOR can improve for the drop in trip to take the honours on his second start over timber. Darver Star can be expected to improve for Champion hurdle winning trainer Gavin Cromwell following his fourth of 21 when last seen in January, while more is anticipated from the Gordon Elliott-trained Tapenade sooner rather than later.
  1. An Fraoch Mor
  2. Darver Star
  3. Tapenade
