Forecast

Ego Des Mottes (4/9), Military Hill (6/1), Castle Canny (6/1), Three Is Company (8/1), Bergkamp (11/1), Fur Elise (16/1), Hellenic Fire (20/1), Getalife (33/1), Three Boyo's (50/1), Canicallheralex (50/1), Cozziemodo (100/1), Moondust Magic (100/1)

Verdict
EGO DES MOTTES is an interesting acquisition for this leading yard and if he is just as effective over hurdles as he was on the Flat, he should make a winning start to Irish debut here. Castle Canny went really close last time at Downpatrick and she is likely to improve for this step up in trip so expect her to be in contention at the finish again, while Military Hill showed some promise on his hurdles debut so he must be fancied to finishing in the placings.
  1. Ego Des Mottes
  2. Castle Canny
  3. Military Hill
