Forecast

West Coast Time (5/2), Lucky Icon (5/1), Maeve's Choice (6/1), Young Dev (6/1), Gagas Horse (7/1), Lizzies Champ (8/1), Shoulda Lied (8/1), Best Behavior (10/1), Killaro Boy (12/1), Wounded Warrior (14/1), Killacolla (14/1), Behind Time (16/1), Drumacoo (16/1), Draycott Place (16/1), Dorans River (25/1), Admiral Brian (25/1), Seskinane (25/1), Sonny B (25/1), Force Of Forces (33/1)

Verdict
The Joseph O'Brien-trained WEST COAST TIME can add to his sole hurdle win here following a number of close calls since December. The form of his second of seven beaten 13L at Limerick has produced five individual winners since, including the winner Off You Go who has landed a treble. The biggest threat to the selection will possibly come from Shoulda Lied for the Willie Mullins and Paul Townend combination, while Admiral Brian and Lizzies Champ can battle for the minor honours.
  1. West Coast Time
  2. Shoulda Lied
  3. Lizzies Champ
