Forecast

Everlastingpromise (5/4), Cusp Of Carabelli (5/1), One In All In (11/2), Seskin Flyer (13/2), Great Khan (10/1), Rebel Turn (10/1), The King Of Brega (14/1), Drumconnor Lad (20/1), Barna Venture (25/1), Chief Of Panama (40/1), Balbir Du Mathan (50/1), Shrewdoperator (66/1)

Verdict
Everlastingpromise is in fine tune and almost defied a 12lb hike when bidding to win over C&D last time, Enda Bolger's charge should go well but has again been hit by the assessor. CUSP OF CARABELLI won a Tramore beginners chase in August on sole start over these obstacles and has held his form since over hurdles. A mark of 115 should be within his wheelhouse. One In All In and Great Khan, second last time at Galway, can also be considered.
  1. Cusp Of Carabelli
  2. Everlastingpromise
  3. One In All In
