Forecast

Ballymoy (8/11), Thistle Do Nicely (4/1), Nube Negra (5/1), Commanche Red (11/1), Equus Amadeus (12/1), Dun Bay Creek (150/1)

Verdict
A very strong contest of its type for the time of year and recompense for the track who suffered a walkover with this event last year. BALLYMOY was a peg or two above the rest of the field over hurdles and if he takes to fences (related to at least one smart chaser) then he should have no trouble making a winning debut. On hurdles ratings there wasn’t much to choose between Nube Negra, Commanche Red and Thistle Do Nicely although their remains a suspicion that the first-named of that trio is a little better than the form book shows. Equus Amadeus will need to be more convincing over the bigger obstacles this time after his one ponderous previous effort in this sphere.
  1. Ballymoy
  2. Nube Negra
  3. Thistle Do Nicely
