Forecasts

Stand Up And Fight (7/4), Some Man (2/1), Mighty Stowaway (4/1), Ucello Conti (8/1), Samurai Cracker (11/1), Wounded Warrior (20/1), Macs Legend (25/1), Salsify (50/1), Top Question (100/1), Lady Violet (100/1), Dubai Dandy (100/1)

Verdict

The eight-year-old gelding, STAND UP AND FIGHT can add a second career win over the larger obstacles under jockey Derek O'Connor. The J P McManus-owned son of Flemensfirth can see of the attentions of his closest rivals, expected to be Mighty Stowaway for trainer J J Hanlon and January hunter chase winner at Clonmel, Some Man. Samurai Cracker, winner of a Limerick hunter chase over Christmas could emerge as a lively outsider.
  1. Stand Up And Fight
