Forecast

Blazer (9/2), Articulum (5/1), R'evelyn Pleasure (6/1), Arvico Bleu (8/1), Kildorrery (9/1), Charlie Stout (10/1), Us And Them (10/1), Avenir D'Une Vie (12/1), Ornua (12/1), Powersbomb (14/1), Duca De Thaix (16/1), Doctor Phoenix (16/1), Ice Cold Soul (20/1), Rock The World (25/1), Vaniteux (25/1), Goulane Chosen (28/1)

Verdict
Plenty with chances in a fascinating contest. A tentative nod goes to ARVICO BLEU who looked all over the winner approaching the final flight at Thurles when last seeing a racecourse in February, If fit for this contest he holds every chance. Another who has been off the track for a while is Blazer. The gelding finished third in this contest last season and if improving since then he could run a big race. Avenir D'Une Vie will have his supporters based on his recent win over course and distance though he needs to defy a big rise in the weights to get competitive.
  1. Arvico Bleu
  2. Avenir D'Une Vie
  3. Blazer
