Forecasts

Licklighter (3/1), Roney (10/3), Monition (10/3), Pistol Shoot (4/1), Shetland Bus (5/1), Stylish Moment (8/1), Yeats Mardy (20/1), Woodbrook Boy (25/1), Doran The Legend (50/1), Randall's Aoibhinn (66/1)

Verdict

The good form over hurdles and chasing experience already under his belt may pay dividends for the Denis Hogan-trained LICKLIGHTER on his third start over the larger obstacles. The Brian Boru gelding can land the spoils in a tricky encounter with the Paul Nolan-trained Roney possibly emerging as the biggest danger. The Gordon Elliott pair Monition and Pistol Shoot both deserve consideration, while Stylish Moment demands a check in the market following a solid run hurdles run over C&D earlier this month.
