Forecast

Likable Chancer (3/1), Doyouthinkso (4/1), Comporta (7/1), Knockraha Boss (8/1), De Benno (8/1), Ladymorata (9/1), Analyse That (12/1), Dundeedy Lad (14/1), Port Rashid (16/1), Lucia's Bob (16/1), Just Call Me (25/1), Jack Wade (25/1)

Verdict
The J J Hanlon-trained COMPORTA can get off the mark for connections at the sixth time of asking over hurdles. Second of eight in a Fairyhouse handicap hurdle on New Years day, the race has produced the third, Wolfofallstreets to win while the victor, Spruced Up finished fourth of 17 in a Grade B handicap hurdle at the Dublin racing festival earlier this month. The solid and consistent, Likable Chancer is likely to be the biggest danger while Do You Think So in first-time cheekpieces and Port Rashid can battle for minor honours with plucky veteran De Benno.
  1. Comporta

  3. Doyouthinkso
