Forecasts

Mastermind (7/2), Union Gap (5/1), Amadeus (6/1), Conron (13/2), Ringo Kid (7/1), Molly Kaye (7/1), Black Label (14/1), Sleepy Head (16/1), Mills On Tour (25/1), Courtin Bb (25/1), Ciankyle (33/1), Ineffable (33/1), Elusive Exclusive (33/1), Cassells Rock (50/1)

Verdict

The Charles O'Brien 124-rated handicap hurdler MASTERMIND can land the closing race of the meeting and can get off the mark at the 10th time of asking on the Flat for connections. The five-year-old is likely to find stiff opposition from the Champion hurdle winning yard of Gavin Cromwell with Amadeus, the Jessica Harrington-trained Conron and the front running Ciankyle.
