Betting

Forecast

Saint D'Oroux (6/4), A Wave Of The Sea (2/1), Leahman (9/2), Laura Bullion (8/1), Khanmurjan (9/1), Colfer Me (10/1), Anycity (33/1), It's All Gucci (50/1), Ballydrislane (66/1), Slainte (66/1)

Verdict

A Wave Of The Sea looks to be the better of the previous winners, with his form appearing stronger than that of Leahman. Joseph O'Brien's charge sets the standard but he concedes a penalty and, with Gordon Elliott saddling five winners here on Friday (last year's winner of this race amongst them), beware the French import SAINT D'OROUX. He was second on his one hurdles run before leaving the continent and could have plenty more to come now. Laura Bullion and hurdling newcomer Anycity are also considered.
  1. Saint D'oroux
  2. A Wave Of The Sea
  3. Leahman
