Forecast

Cherokee Bill (11/4), Iknowwhereiamnow (11/4), Chosen Hour (11/2), I'mstillyourbaby (6/1), Moyode Lady (6/1), Lough Gur (12/1), Clonguile Way (20/1), Major Fawcett (33/1)

Verdict
No real form of note from those who have encountered fences before so it may be an idea to look to those with the best hurdles form among the debutantes. IKNOWWHEREIAMNOW needs to put a poor run last time out behind her but she had previously won well at Gowran Park. A clear round and she may have the beating of her rivals. Moyode Lady is another with fair hurdles form and another who disappointed last time out. If taking to fences she may give the selection most to do. Cherokee Bill is a very experienced chaser now and because of that fact, he holds realistic each-way claims. .
  1. Iknowwhereiamnow
  2. Moyode Lady
  3. Cherokee Bill
