Forecast

Colreevy (2/5), Scarlet And Dove (3/1), Lady Breffni (15/2), Valentina Lady (9/1), Lady Mccabe (20/1), Clancypantz (33/1), Carrolls Grove (50/1), Flying Crystal (50/1), Irregularheartbeat (50/1), Little Token (66/1), Hollow Lady (66/1), Kayla's Delight (66/1), Anjilina (66/1), Annual Flavour (100/1), Miss Anfield (100/1), Lady Velazquez (100/1)

Verdict
It's hard to see past the chances of COLREEVY for the Willie Mullins yard. The Grade 1 winner of the Champion bumper at the Punchestown festival in May should have enough to dispose of the opposition on her second start over hurdles. The Joseph O'Brien pair Scarlet And Dove along with Lady Breffni can emerge as a likely threat to the six-year-old. The Paul Nolan-trained Valentina Lady should not be taken lightly to finish in the frame.
  1. Colreevy
  2. Scarlet And Dove
  3. Valentina Lady
