Forecasts

Brogine (6/4), Ask And Answer (3/1), Aasleagh Dawn (6/1), The Big Lense (6/1), On Call (8/1), Presentingprincess (10/1), Lessofdnegativity (10/1), Court Tycoon (11/1), Shetland Bus (14/1), You Can't Catch Me (14/1), It'll Do Rightly (25/1), Castlehume (25/1), Bridies Boy (33/1)

Verdict

Strong case for the bounce factor having an effect on the chances of ready Ballinrobe winner Brogine, so it may pay to follow the Sean Aherne-trained, ASK AND ANSWER. The 2L winner at Tipperary recently can get the better of Peter Fahey's Court Tycoon, Presentingprincess and You Can't Catch Me for trainer Kieran Purcell.
