Forecast

Cheb De Kerviniou (6/1), Cle En Main (6/1), Rocky's Silver (7/1), Agusta Gold (8/1), Out Sam (12/1), Minella Till Dawn (12/1), Roaring Bull (12/1), Ifyoucatchmenow (14/1), General Principle (14/1), Mon Lino (14/1), Prince Of Scars (14/1), Stones And Roses (20/1), Spider Web (20/1), Killer Miller (20/1), Space Cadet (25/1), Gun Digger (25/1), Call The Taxie (25/1), The Gatechecker (25/1), Forever Gold (50/1)

Verdict
MINELLA TILL DAWN came good last time at Cork and despite a large rise in the weights, could be in the mood to follow up. A big galloping type, this extra trip should be no problem though his jumping is not the best. Rocky's Silver steps up in trip looking for his hat-trick over fences and should give another good account. Call The Taxie is a fascinating contender after his promising run last time.
  1. Minella Till Dawn
  2. Rocky's Silver
  3. Call The Taxie
