Forecast

Cloudy Morning (3/1), Eagle Roque (6/1), Shar Whats Therush (6/1), Freewheelin Dylan (7/1), Goodnightngodbless (8/1), An Fraoch Mor (10/1), The Last Armada (12/1), Chin'up (14/1), Static Jack (14/1), Seskinane (16/1), Presentingprincess (16/1), West Is Best (16/1), Isabel's Gold (20/1), Peterstown (25/1), Our Brian (25/1), Admiral Brian (33/1)

Verdict
There are two runner here who both make great appeal. They are recent 2m course winner AN FRAOCH MOR who is bred to be even better now upped to 3m and Cloudy Morning who won over fences here last time out yet contests this hurdle race off a 3lb lower mark. Narrow preference is for the five years younger An Fraoch Mor. Shar Whats Therush is another with very legitimate claims.
  1. An Fraoch Mor
  2. Cloudy Morning
  3. Shar Whats Therush
