Forecast

Zoffalee (7/4), Divin Desir (7/2), Alfred Wegener (7/1), Derby De Thaix (8/1), She'stherightone (9/1), Flattothemat (11/1), Crocosmia (11/1), Swiss Cottage (12/1), Ostaiocht (14/1), Geoffrey's Girl (16/1), English Pale (16/1), Cloughmoylepatriot (20/1), Perfect In Pink (25/1), Shes Gold (25/1), Lesssaidthebetter (33/1), Dragon Queen (33/1), Miss Mcilroy (33/1), Streak (33/1), Havelock (40/1)

Verdict
The Zoffany gelding ZOFFALEE can get off the mark for connections at the fifth time of asking over hurdles with the booking of Robbie Power an additional positive for the four-year-old. Running well in defeat recently the gelding can get the better of Alfred Wegener who can emerge as the biggest danger. The Denis Hogan-trained Derby De Thaix can battle for the minor honours with Ostaiocht and, if getting a run, Divin Desir.
  1. Zoffalee
  2. Alfred Wegener
