Forecast

Duke's Girl (3/1), Global Racing (9/2), Watching Brief (6/1), Howitsdone (7/1), Musical Ava (7/1), Pump Road (8/1), Balgowlah (9/1), Greenandwhitearmy (11/1), Bye Bye O Bye (14/1), Caerleon Kate (14/1), Miracle Way (14/1), Madaboy Cross (14/1), Mash Potato (16/1), Divine Lucy (16/1), Basil's Boy (20/1), Perle Rose (25/1), Galuppi (25/1), Oscar Light (33/1)

Verdict
DUKE'S GIRL can finally win her first hurdle race at the 18th time of asking following a couple of solid efforts recently and should appreciate the drop in trip here. Beaten favourite at Kilbeggan earlier this month, the five-year-old can land the spoils ahead of the Gavin Cromwell-trained, Global Racing who can emerge as the biggest danger. Top weight, Bye Bye O Baby will be assisted by the 7lb claim of Darragh O'Keefe, while Pump Road, winner at Sligo in April can go well at a price.
