Forecast

Sizing Pottsie (9/4), Zero Ten (3/1), Cut The Mustard (13/2), Dunvegan (8/1), Capuccimix (9/1), Dallas Des Pictons (10/1), Emily Moon (12/1), Ministerforsport (20/1), Star Max (20/1)

Verdict
Last-time-out Grade 3 winner Sizing Pottsie commands major respect but in receipt of a handy 6lb, preference is for ZERO TEN. Three from four over hurdles - and a close second in a Grade 2 novice the other time - Zero Ten did well on his first two starts over fences, winning at Galway in July and then chasing home a good horse at Naas in January when back from six months off. Dallas Des Pictons, also a useful hurdler and who ran well on his latest chase start, is best of the remainder.
  1. Zero Ten
  2. Sizing Pottsie
  3. Dallas Des Pictons
