Forecast

Caravation (7/2), Best Behavior (4/1), Uaintseenothingyet (4/1), Star Max (5/1), The Gunner Murphy (7/1), Stones And Roses (10/1), The Caddy Rose (14/1), Dasmyhoss (20/1), Ballyneety (20/1), Victoria Bay (25/1)

Verdict
The daughter of Presenting CARAVATION can improve on a solid win at Naas over 2m earlier this month. The seven-year-old got off the mark at the fourth time of asking over the larger obstacles and can continue the winning thread here ahead of the likes of Best Behaviour who won at the fifth attempt for connections taking a 2m5f handicap chase at Leopardstown late last month off a 8lb lower mark beating 14 rivals 2L. Owner J P McManus runs three in the race with The Gunner Murphy and Ballyneety worth a check in the market as post time looms. Pulled up on his most recent start at Limerick over Christmas, Stones And Roses should not be underestimated.
  1. Caravation
  2. Best Behavior
  3. Stones And Roses
