Forecast

Robin Gold (4/1), Midland Millie (9/2), Moll Dote (5/1), Wild Desire (7/1), Iknowwhereiamnow (8/1), Shantelle (12/1), Cailean's Angel (12/1), Gambling Mistress (12/1), Rebel Early (16/1), Bianca Minola (16/1), Elegant Lass (20/1), Birdie Blitz (25/1), Peace N' Milan (25/1), Amber And Black (50/1), Silvretta Schwarz (66/1)

Verdict
The Paul Nolan-trained WILD DESIRE won for the second time over hurdles when landing a handicap on good to yielding ground off a 12lb lower mark over C&D last month. The daughter of Beneficial has adept claimer, Sean O'Keefe in the plate to part off-set the rise in the weights. Robin Gold, who arrives here on the back of a double over timber at Thurles and Clonmel last month can emerge as the biggest danger with Midland Millie and Gambling Mistress left to compete for remaining prize money.
  1. Wild Desire
  2. Robin Gold
  3. Midland Millie
