Steer Clear (2/1), Kavanaghs Corner (5/1), At Your Ease (5/1), Crazyheart (11/2), Western Sea (11/2), Double Portrait (9/1), Fiveaftermidnight (10/1), Persian Wind (16/1)

Verdict

KAVANAGHS CORNER has been running with great consistency of late and while it has not gone unnoticed by the handicapper this looks a good opportunity for the eleven-year-old to get back to winning ways. There was plenty to like about his two most recent outings at Clonmel and Limerick and repeat of those efforts should see him go close. At Your Ease should be noted in the betting ring. He was showing some progression last spring and if ready after a break then he could go well with first time equipment applied. Crazyheart has better form over fences and while his last effort over fences was below par, he may be worth another chance.
