Forecast

Mah Mate Bob (2/1), Pogue (5/2), Carrigmoorna Matt (4/1), Almazhar Garde (9/2), Inca Gold (8/1), Monsieur D'Arque (14/1), Empire De Maulde (14/1), Mance Rayder (33/1)

Verdict
Empire De Maulde is clearly of interest having won his last two hurdles starts, but he been off for some time and could be forgiven for needing this reappearance on his chase debut. Also making his first appearance over fences is POGUE, and with his trainer's good record here to fuel confidence and soft ground a positive, he may prove up to the task. Mah Mate Bob is another likely to be popular with punters and is feared in opposition, while Inca Gold and Monsieur D'Arque are others of interest in a competitive event.
