Forecasts

Enjoy D'allen (7/4), Bourbon Borderline (5/2), Soldiers Hill (7/2), Bloodstone (4/1), Memories Remain (11/1), Annual Flavour (40/1), Knot On Time (66/1), Aileens Joy (66/1), Ballylig (100/1), Scarlet Rebel (125/1), Doyler's Mate (250/1), Doing The Double (300/1)

Verdict

ENJOY D'ALLEN shaped like the step up in trip would suit on his most recent start and can get off the mark at the seventh time of asking. The Network gelding ran well in defeat on return to action in a Kilbeggan 2m4f maiden hurdle last month, running on in the closing stages, beaten a neck by Somptueux on good ground. The six-year-old will appreciate this trip enough to hold off the challengers in the shape of the Gigginstown House Stud-owned Bloodstone for trainer Henry De Bromhead and the John McConnell-trained, Memories Remain, another in the field who will appreciate going up in distance. Winner at this track previously, Soldiers Hill commands respect.
  1. Enjoy D'allen
  2. Bloodstone
  3. Memories Remain
