Forecast

Wake Up Early (9/4), Highest Benefit (4/1), Whats In It For Me (4/1), Captain Cruiser (4/1), Lacken Bridge (7/1), Flynsini (7/1), Rock On Aussie (8/1), Kilderry Prince (9/1), Shanklys Dawn (12/1), Misty Adage (16/1)

Verdict
Kilderry Prince landed the spoils in this contest 12 months ago but the veterans lack of time on the track may be his downfall as he goes for two in a row. The J P McManus-owned WAKE UP EARLY can land the closing race following a slight hiccup at Fairyhouse when last seen in November when still travelling well before unseating two out. The six-year-old can set the record straight in this contest at the expense of C&D Highest Benefit and top weight Lacken Bridge who could prove a big danger stepping up in trip where the nine-year-old has won over C&D. What's In It For Me and Flynsini, behind Cappacurry Zak at Limerick on Friday can give a good account of themselves.
  1. Wake Up Early
  2. Highest Benefit
  3. Lacken Bridge
