Forecast

Cherif De L'Isle (7/2), Nicole's Milan (11/2), Baily Thunder (7/1), Fire Away (8/1), Lee Valley Legacy (10/1), Ice Cool (10/1), Highest Benefit (11/1), Diamond Grove (12/1), Sweet Sting (12/1), Ahgetawayoutadat (12/1), Moscowsowhat (12/1), Scotsman's Bay (16/1), Peculiar Genius (20/1), Ballybrowney Jack (20/1), Hardy Man (20/1), Punchers Path (25/1), Mal De Mer (25/1), Cepalo Delafayette (33/1), All Class (33/1), Olive D'Haguenet (33/1)

Verdict
Connections have been patient with ICE COOL and he rewarded them with some place prize money on his return from a long absence at Punchestown. If he can improve on that effort then he looks to have an excellent chance to get back to winning ways. Near veteran Highest Benefit is in the form of his life at present and showed a good deal of bravery to hold off challengers when winning last time out at Fairyhouse. If still in good heart then he can run well again. Lee Valley Legacy needs to improve his jumping but showed on his penultimate start he has ability and has a reasonable each-way chance.
  1. Ice Cool
  2. Highest Benefit
  3. Cherif De L'Isle
