Forecast

Pogue (4/1), Lough Har (5/1), Est Illic (7/1), Hey Bud (7/1), Iron Horse (8/1), Shanroe Tic Tec (8/1), Destined To Shine (10/1), Massini Man (10/1), Court Dreaming (12/1), Not Going Out (22/1), Little Stevie (28/1)

Verdict
Lightly raced POGUE always looked a chaser in the making over hurdles and his sound fourth in a race working out pretty well first time over fences concurs with that view. He gets the nod here for the prolific McCain/Hughes combination. Massini Man's first chase race was in a warm event and he acquitted himself with credit so he too looks a big player. Of the chasing debutants Shanroe Tic Tec makes most appeal.
  1. Pogue
  2. Massini Man
  3. Shanroe Tic Tec
