Forecast

Opposites Attract (15/8), Alighted (11/4), Farceur Du Large (9/2), Coolagh Park (8/1), Legacy Thor (14/1), Arakan Quest (14/1), Lily's Gem (16/1), Stansfield (16/1), Blue Markie (16/1), Outside The Ring (20/1), Punchers Path (25/1), Jaunty Warrior (25/1), Cala Di Volpe (50/1), Junius Brutus (50/1), The Miser (66/1), Dinos Mixa (66/1), Bintheredonethat (66/1), Falkland Castle (66/1), Dessie Deschamps (66/1)

Verdict
ALIGHTED has already had success in a bumper and he can go one place better than his second place finish in a big field at Punchestown on his hurdles debut last time out. Opposites Attract has gone close to his first win on a number of occasions since going hurdling so expect another big run, while Coolagh Park has done very little wrong on his two appearances on the track so far and is worth taking to finish in the placings.
  1. Alighted
  2. Opposites Attract
  3. Coolagh Park
