Forecast

Top Of The Charts (5/2), Back To Bataan (6/1), Home Place (7/1), Fu's Island (8/1), Mr Jacaranda (8/1), Caerleon Kate (9/1), Mary Fields (12/1), Zagnzig (16/1), Fruits Of Glory (16/1), Court Martialed (16/1), Burlesque Queen (20/1), James Boru (20/1), Boston Babe (25/1), Whatever It Takes (25/1), Siempre Amigos (33/1), Sir Ector (33/1), Nevada Rose (50/1)

Verdict
Top Of The Charts represents the in-form Gavin Cromwell yard, after a double at Bellewstown on Thursday, and he is a huge threat to all here if transferring his recent chase form to this discipline from a much lower mark. FU'S ISLAND stormed home to deny an in-form rival at Tramore last time, a race from which a couple of next-time-out winners have come, and he is fancied to go well once more with smart claimer Darragh O'Keefe booked to ride. Mr Jacaranda is a danger going up in trip, while Home Place is surely better than his last effort at Southwell.
