Forecast

Column Of Fire (5/2), Aione (11/4), Home By The Lee (3/1), Joshua Webb (5/1), Last Minute Man (10/1), Western Fancy (20/1), Two Shoe Tom (20/1), Ego Des Mottes (25/1), Zenon (33/1), Enjoy D'allen (40/1), Dawson's Gate (66/1), Euclyde Dubreau (66/1), Shopping Around (66/1), All About Joe (100/1), Hostage To Fortune (100/1), Sargent Lightfoot (100/1), Rebel Gold (100/1), Haggard Lad (100/1), Mandamus (100/1)

Verdict
AIONE has clearly been hard to train, but Willie Mullins excels with similar sorts, and he looked a good prospect when landing a Punchestown bumper in November. He looks a bright prospect, and can get the better of form pick Column of Fire. Home By The Lee shaped well on his debut over obstacles, and this dual bumper winner is also on the shortlist.
  1. Aione
  2. Home By The Lee
  3. Column Of Fire
