Forecast

Ar Eagla Na Heagla (4/1), Jack Dillinger (4/1), Callthebarman (9/2), Mrs Lovett (5/1), Global Jackpot (7/1), Act In Time (7/1), Reach Up (9/1), Powersbomb (10/1), Kasakh Noir (33/1)

Verdict
A chance is taken with commentator's nightmare AR EAGLA NA HEAGLA who was a beaten favourite last time out at Downpatrick following a very good effort at Sligo the time before. The handicapper has relented slightly with her and she could be ready to win her first chase contest. Mrs Lovett has been slightly out of form since falling at Kilbeggan in August. The application of cheekpieces may aid her chances of restoring some confidence in the mare. Act In Time ran no sort of race last time out and is better judged on his winning run at Killarney in August.
  1. Ar Eagla Na Heagla
  2. Mrs Lovett
  3. Act In Time
