Forecasts

Curlew Hill (6/4), En Beton (5/2), Oscar Thyne (5/1), Rocconrockall (6/1), Annie Kate (10/1), John Cannon (20/1), Milliway (25/1), Tango Echo Charlie (100/1)

Verdict

ANNIE KATE has been brought along quietly and although her recent bumper form does not instantly suggest she will be winning soon, her runs at Naas and Punchestown provide enough encouragement to suggest she has a degree of talent and this could be a fair opportunity with a lack of serious rivals in the line-up. Her latest run was decent and if improving on that she could go close. Curlew Hill showed improvement on his latest outing and if able to progress he should be close enough. En Beton, like most of Willie Mullins' bumper runners, will have needed his first run at Navan in December and will be a popular selection.
  1. Annie Kate
