Forecast

De Mazzaro (7/2), Top Moon (4/1), Razoul (4/1), Cloudy Morning (7/1), Jon Ess (8/1), Westerner Point (10/1), Scheu Time (12/1), Morga (14/1), Velocity Boy (20/1), Orgilgo Bay (20/1)

Verdict
RAZOUL has been nothing if not consistent over hurdles, finishing first or second in his last six starts. His wins at Kilbeggan and Listowel boosted confidence and his last-time-out second in a Grade 3 novice at Tipperary was another step up. He can prove hard to beat back in a handicap. The veteran Cloudy Morning is in good heart but this trip does appear sharp. Jon Ess should be on the board sooner rather than later and went close again at Navan last time while Top Moon is closely matched with the selection on their Listowel meeting and therefore of some interest too.
  1. Razoul
