Forecast

Articulum (5/2), Any Second Now (3/1), Cadmium (3/1), Hardline (5/1), Castlegrace Paddy (5/1), Ornua (6/1)

Verdict
Plenty depends on what condition Cadmium turns up. He won this race last season but he has been well beaten on his two appearances this season which does not auger well for his chances. Given that doubt then it may pay to side with ANY SECOND NOW who was running well in the Paddy Power Chase over Christmas before unfortunately unseating his rider. He showed no ill effects from that experience and ran well last time at the same venue earlier this month. Castlegrace Paddy will appreciate this step back in class and given he is a Grade 2 winner, this race is well within his compass.
