Forecast

Ellie Mac (11/4), Batcio (11/2), At The Acorn (6/1), Trainwreck (8/1), Callthebarman (8/1), Allardyce (12/1), Jack Dillinger (12/1), Ice Cold Soul (14/1), Grand Partner (14/1), Drumconnor Lad (20/1), Crazyheart (20/1), Powersbomb (25/1), Tikkanen Express (25/1), Rock The World (25/1), Or Jaune De Somoza (25/1), Dasmyhoss (33/1)

Verdict
The handicapper has decided to leave BATCIO on the same mark after he bolted up at Thurles, and while he's meeting stiffer competition here, the gelding is clearly better over fences than hurdles, and can take advantage of a lenient mark. Callthebarman is the biggest danger having taken a token rise for his fall at Down Royal last time. He would have won well there but for his mishap, and can go close once more. At The Acorn has plenty to find on form, but has been brought along with handicaps in mind, and looks a surefire improver.
  1. Batcio
  2. Callthebarman
  3. At The Acorn
