Forecast

Great Bear (4/11), Cafe Con Leche (7/2), Marvel Fan (5/1), Georgette Fun (6/1), Myles Milan (25/1), Blackjack Boy (33/1), Carmels Gift (40/1), Its All Grace (50/1), Pour Sioux (80/1), Wildewood (125/1)

Verdict
MARVEL FAN brings plenty of experience to the table having raced on numerous occasions in France. She was a winner of a chase in that country last time out and if continuing in the same vein then she may prove hard to beat getting plenty of weight from most of her rivals. Great Bear ran much better than expected in a Grade 3 contest at Fairyhouse and if reproducing that form he should go close. Georgette Fun is another who has won in France and while her Irish debut was underwhelming, she may be worth another chance.
