Forecasts

O Ceallaigh (4/1), Risk And Roll (9/2), Kashmir Peak (9/2), Magna Sam (6/1), Alfstar (6/1), Waterloo Warrior (8/1), Irish Anthem (17/2), Asylo (17/2), Five Gold Bars (12/1), Berboru (40/1)

Verdict

KASHMIR PEAK is one of the most exposed, but he ran well when second to Minella Rocco on his hunter chase debut at Warwick, and meets nothing of that calibre here. O Ceallaigh was third to The Dellercheckout at Ludlow recently, and has place claims on that, while Irish Anthem has been placed behind that rival in points this winter, and is a prolific winner between the flags, so is respected despite his belated start to life under Rules.
  1. Kashmir Peak
  2. O Ceallaigh
  3. Irish Anthem
