Forecast

Energumene (1/4), Ballymacaw (6/1), Coolagh Park (10/1), Exultation (12/1), Champagne Paddy (16/1), Big Debates (20/1), Glendruid (20/1), Jessica's Boy (33/1), Daring Disciple (50/1), Four Horsemen (66/1), Duca Di Milano (100/1), Iridescent (100/1), Amlad (100/1)

Verdict
ENERGUMENE won a point-to-point before winning his bumper at the second time of asking. The French-bred gelding is well regarded and should have the class to land this contest which is notable for not having too many potential winners. Exultation disappointed after a promising start to his hurdle career but maybe the fitting of a tongue-tie could be the key to seeing him get back to the form he showed on his debut behind the smart Cheltenham hopeful Envoi Allen. Coolagh Park ran well in his bumper last May and looks to be slowly getting the hang of things over hurdles.
  1. Energumene
  2. Exultation
  3. Coolagh Park
