Forecast

Everlastingpromise (15/8), Artic Pearl (9/2), Stylish Moment (10/1), Indian Music (10/1), Western Sea (10/1), Captain Cobajay (11/1), Fleurys Fort (14/1), Thisonesforollie (16/1), Barna Venture (16/1), Fairymount Boy (16/1), Whoyakodding (20/1), Bellgrove (33/1), Lean And Keen (40/1), Crazywork De Vassy (50/1)

Verdict
First-time handicapper, WESTERN SEA can continue his rich run of form in this contest. The gelding continued his improvement when landing a Sligo 2m5f beginners contest on good to yielding ground last month. A repeat of that effort can see him holding off the attentions of some big dangers with the Enda Bolger-trained Everlastingpromise and recent Fairyhouse winner, Captain Cobajay. Stylish Moment a winner over the larger obstacles at Downpatrick earlier this month is no forlorn hope while Artic Pearl can be a force to be reckoned with if jumping fluently.
  1. Western Sea
  2. Everlastingpromise
  3. Captain Cobajay
