Forecast

Big Tree (7/4), Good Luck Hope (3/1), Le Hachette (9/2), Hesamanofhisword (5/1), Woodbrook Boy (8/1), Tapenade (16/1), They All Fell Out (25/1), Onenightintown (66/1), Baronial Hall (66/1)

Verdict
It could be said BIG TREE ran in to a couple at Punchestown in June but the form of his second of 11 at Wexford in a maiden hurdle has produced the Paul Nolan-trained, Shawshank to win since. The Scorpion gelding can win over hurdles at the fifth time of asking with Good Luck Hope and Woodbrook Boy looking to improve on their most recent starts. The J P Ryan-trained Le Hachette should not be easily discounted.
  1. Big Tree
  2. Good Luck Hope
  3. Woodbrook Boy
