Forecast

Vinnie Is Busy (11/10), All About Joe (4/1), Barnaviddaun (9/2), Hesamanofhisword (12/1), Wavelength (12/1), Henry Brown (12/1), I'm So Busy (16/1), Behind The Curtain (33/1), Ringhill Lady (66/1), Dilly Filly (100/1), Jerry Russell (100/1), Will You Win (100/1), Its Theway Forward (100/1), Raleagh Flora (150/1), You No Me Too Well (200/1), I'm On Snap (200/1)

Verdict
A fair few of these have each-way claims but ALL ABOUT JOE could be a cut above the rest judged on the form and promise of his recent performance over 2m7f at Thurles. This shorter trip may not be ideal in the longer term but he still makes most appeal. Barnaviddaun and Wavelength may well be the chief dangers on evidence over hurdles but the bumper winners Vinnie Is Busy and Henry Brown also need a look.
  1. All About Joe
  2. Barnaviddaun
  3. Wavelength
