Forecast

Burrows Saint (6/5), Robin Des Foret (9/2), Moonshine Bay (9/2), Nick Lost (6/1), Roaring Bull (10/1), Moyhenna (10/1), Beyond The Law (14/1), The Conditional (20/1)

Verdict
The two Willie Mullins-trained runners Burrows Saint and Robin Des Foret weave a conundrum in this event will both capable of mounting a sustained challenge but preference is for the improving MOONSHINE BAY who has been running well in Graded contests around the turn of the year. The Jessica Harrington-trained Milan gelding is still improving and can make his mark here. Roaring Bull and the progressive Moyhenna for Denis Hogan are worthy of consideration in a fascinating contest.
  1. Moonshine Bay
  2. Burrows Saint
  3. Roaring Bull
