Forecast

Politesse (4/5), Watergate Lady (4/1), Rhyme'n Rhythm (4/1), Beth Horan (4/1), Dysart Diamond (10/1), Carrigeen Lactuca (25/1), Some Joke (25/1), Imperial Allure (33/1), Highland Penny (33/1), Shadow Dubh (33/1), Mind Sunday (33/1), Cosa Ban (40/1), Can U Believe (66/1)

Verdict
The Willie Mullins-trained RHYME'N RHYTHM wouldn't have to improve too much on her second to Larquebuse on debut at Punchestown in October. That race, at the start of the season, has produced the winner to win again while the fourth landed a Fairyhouse maiden hurdle in November. The Lorna Fowler-trained Politesse may have to settle for hitting the frame once again while Watergate Lady and Beth Horan command respect in the closing race of the day.
  1. Rhyme'n Rhythm
  2. Politesse
  3. Beth Horan
