Betting

Forecast

Shantou Sisu (11/4), Burlesque Queen (9/2), Fou Diligence (6/1), Port Rashid (8/1), Crazyheart (10/1), Fly Round The Bend (10/1), Currig's Girl (12/1), Feyan (14/1), Reine Fee (16/1), Take A Punt (16/1), Vipers Nest (20/1), Blaze A Trail (20/1), Costalita (25/1), Une Lavandiere (25/1), Fallen Forest (33/1), Fulysse (50/1)

Verdict

Running well in defeat in a couple of maiden hurdles in September will have FOU DILIGENCE ready to get off the mark on handicap debut in this contest. The four-year-old can hold off the attentions of the Paul Nolan-trained Crazyheart who ran with plenty of credit on handicap debut at Wexford late last month. Winner at this track in February, Reine Free can compete with C&D third, Shantou Sisu for minor honours.
  1. Fou Diligence
