Betting

Forecast

Early Doors (1/1), Dandy Mag (9/2), High Sparrow (6/1), From Eden (7/1), Minella Times (8/1), Rathnure Rebel (8/1), Dorans River (11/1), The Mulcare Rover (66/1)

Verdict

Early Doors was the pick of these over hurdles, and merits plenty of respect on his switch to fences, but preference is for DANDY MAG, himself a very useful hurdler, but with the pedigree and physique of one who should excel as a chaser, and a lengthy absence is no great concern given connections. Minella Times is the pick of those with experience and can take advantage should the principals fail to make a smooth transition.
