Forecast

Mount Ida (13/8), Drury (11/4), Valentina Lady (9/2), Lady Loretto (8/1), Simonsfleur (8/1), Uisce Solas (11/1), Miss Cognac (16/1), Belle Sassie (16/1), Tina's Girl (20/1), Embracincurvacious (25/1), Tritonix (50/1), Still Haventaclue (50/1), Miss Rossie (66/1), The Girl That Sang (66/1), Rubiana (66/1), Purple Polly (66/1), Allure Of Light (100/1)

Verdict
Lots of good form represented here with Valentina Lady having been surrounded by previous winners on her debut and Uisce Solas showing definite promise on both starts. Willie Mullins saddles an attractively bred newcomer in Drury. This may well be fought out between Jamie Codd and Derek O'Connor on MOUNT IDA and Simonsfleur respectively. The latter is bred to win a race like this and like many of her trainer's horses can be expected to improve greatly for an initial run. The selection showed a high cruising speed on her hurdling debut and looked a useful mare when landing her point-to-point. There are some nice sorts in opposition but she sets a decent standard.
  1. Mount Ida
  2. Simonsfleur
  3. Drury
