Forecast

Young Ted (1/1), Golden Spread (3/1), Bois De Clamart (5/1), Desire De Joie (11/2), Thunderosa (25/1), Stansfield (33/1), The Dreams Alive (33/1), Michael's Pick (50/1), Dessie Deschamps (66/1), A Star In Leo (66/1)

Verdict
YOUNG TED has the best form of those on show and while one might have expected a win from him by now, this looks a decent opportunity for him to get off the mark. The six-year put up his best performance to finish second in a handicap at Punchestown and he has fair form at this track to boot. Michael's Pick showed a fair amount of promise last time out and seems sure to be suited to this step up in trip while it would be no surprise to see Willie Mullins finally getting a tune out of the frustrating Golden Spread.
  1. Young Ted
  2. Michael's Pick
  3. Golden Spread
