Forecasts

Verdict

AIONE, with the benefit of a recent run, may prove too strong for his rivals despite the trip possibly being on the short side for a hurdler who shapes like an out and out stayer; there was plenty to like about the way he ran behind the winner on his hurdles debut at Fairyhouse on New Year's Day and can go one better here. Henry Brown produced a shock on his bumper debut at Fairyhouse in October and if fit after a long break is expected to make a solid hurdles debut. Another who needs to prove his fitness is West Cork Wildway who has done little wrong on the racecourse to date and is certainly worth a look at in the betting.
  1. Aione
  2. West Cork Wildway
  3. Henry Brown
