Forecast

Whatsnotoknow (5/4), Still Standing (3/1), The Broghie Man (9/2), Rebellito (11/2), Gold Des Bois (8/1), Western Run (14/1), Alabaster (20/1), Backsheesh (25/1), Jessica's Boy (25/1), Yarraman (33/1), Kilcarry View (40/1), Go Fox (50/1), Henry Sellers (50/1), Ekanse (66/1), Bobby Boy (66/1), Haggard Lad (100/1), Midnight Wilde (100/1), Sao Paulo (100/1), Gendarme (100/1), My Lark (100/1), Bluesea Storm (150/1)

Verdict
The Mouse Morris-trained WHATSNOTOKNOW can build on a career best effort when finishing second of 10 beaten ½L last month over C&D. The five-year-old under jockey Rachael Blackmore can get off the mark for connections over hurdles at the fourth time of asking holding off the attentions of The Broghie Man who finished second of 22 in a Punchestown maiden hurdle last month. Still Standing and Backsheesh can compete for remaining prize money while the Willie Mullins-trained Rebellito should not be taken lightly.
  1. Whatsnotoknow
  2. The Broghie Man
  3. Still Standing
