Forecast

Bee A Beneficiary (2/1), Celebrity Status (9/2), Oisin James (11/2), Sizing Rome (8/1), Big Bad Brian (8/1), Capture The Drama (10/1), Crocodile Dundee (12/1), Stoughan Cross (14/1), Chief Of Panama (20/1)

Verdict
Trainer Jim Dreaper appears to have found an ideal opening for his Cork national fourth, SIZING ROME to win his third chase following a 139-day break. The seven-year-old has more solid and consistent runs on his CV in this field and can see off the attentions of Bee A Beneficiary on handicap debut and Clomel third on his last chase start, Oisin James.
  1. Sizing Rome
  2. Bee A Beneficiary
  3. Oisin James
