Betting

Forecast

Evander (13/8), Kerrkenny Gold (9/4), Len Brennan (4/1), Ulterior Motives (9/2), Bavington Bob (33/1)

Verdict
EVANDER can put an early unseat last time out behind him to register his second victory over hurdles in this novices' event. The selection can get the better of Len Brennan who should appreciate this drop back in distance having disappointed over further last time out while third place can go to Kerrkenny Gold who showed improved form last time out.
  1. Evander
  2. Len Brennan
  3. Kerrkenny Gold
