Forecast

Kayf Thou (9/2), Howaya Aoife (6/1), The Reaping Race (8/1), Empirion (8/1), Ard Na Carraig (8/1), Zambezir (9/1), Notice To Close (10/1), Mossy White (10/1), Lee Valley Legacy (12/1), Askann (12/1), Geesala Scorpion (12/1), Nicole's Milan (14/1), Pino Boy (14/1), Good Luck Hope (25/1), Fr Gilligansvoyge (33/1)

Verdict
ARD NA CARRAIG comes from a yard whose last three runners in handicaps have won, and he was best of the rest behind the impressive Wolfofallstreets at Thurles in November. He can go one better here, at the main expense of Askann, who was doing her best work late last time, and will appreciate the return to 3m, a remark which also applies to Howaya Aoife, who was beaten narrowly over a furlong shorter here last time.
  1. Ard Na Carraig
  2. Askann
  3. Howaya Aoife
