Forecast

Johnny Little Legs (5/2), Ballea Fox (7/1), Memory Of Youth (15/2), Duhallow Paddy (8/1), Need For Gold (8/1), Goulane Jessie (9/1), Sporty Yankee (10/1), Fourina (12/1), Our Majella (12/1), Hide Out (16/1), My Newbrook Rose (20/1), Cousin Pascal (20/1), Hilltop Supreme (28/1), Railway Tommy (33/1), Wade Harper (33/1), Feagreen Native (33/1), Shantelle (50/1), I Will Walk (100/1), Stellar Stow (100/1)

Verdict
Having shown his best recent form when fresh, DUHALLOW PADDY is worth another chance on his return from a two-month break. Johnny Little Legs and Memory Of Youth are open to further progress at this level, while Our Majella could go well returned to this venue. A few others also have possibilities in an open contest.
  1. Duhallow Paddy
  2. Johnny Little Legs
  3. Memory Of Youth
