Forecast

Song Of Namibia (3/1), Misty Millie (4/1), Billy's Angel (9/2), Atlas (11/2), Arctic Light (7/1), Dundrum Lad (8/1), Here In The Dark (14/1), Hickey's Rock (20/1), Alterno (28/1)

Verdict
This contest has the appearance of a tricky puzzle to solve, with recent winning form hard to come by. After a string of fairly modest efforts in good-quality maiden hurdles, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Here In The Dark show marked improvement for the switch to the handicap sphere, and he holds an unexposed profile over the smaller obstacles. Dundrum Lad should appreciate the return to 2m/hurdles after enduring a tricky time over fences, but if MISTY MILLIE can reproduce the form she showed when fourth at the Punchestown Festival when last seen over hurdles, she would be entitled to go very close to gaining a third win over hurdles win.
  1. Misty Millie
  2. Here In The Dark
  3. Dundrum Lad
