Forecast

Authorized Art (5/4), Batts Rock (3/1), Kirwans Lane (3/1), Fightfortheroses (7/1), Engelus (10/1), Brog Ahaon (14/1), Father Ailbe (33/1), Universal Focus (50/1), Justice Jim (66/1), Brokopondo (100/1), A Dos No Bueno (100/1)

Verdict
Willie Mullins has made buying lightly raced French imports a fine art and with that in mind AUTHORIZED ART is fancied to take this with his lone previous hurdles race in France pretty encouraging in it's own right. If he needs the run or underperforms consistent Batts Rock will likely take advantage. Also once races over hurdles and respected if Fightfortheroses.
