Betting

Forecast

Roi De Dubai (5/2), Braid Blue (11/4), Monkshood (11/4), Popong (3/1), Castello Sforza (7/1), High Sparrow (8/1), Peaches And Cream (17/2), Minella United (20/1)

Verdict

All eyes will be on BRAID BLUE as the high-class hurdler makes his belated chase debut. The seven-year-old looks likely to have the good ground he needs to show his best and strong market support would suggest connections think him ready on debut. Castello Sforza took a while to show some ability on the track but put in a solid performance recently at Tramore and if able to improve then he should go well. Popong was another who was a decent hurdler. The mare showed enough on her chase debut at Tipperary last month to suggest she is capable of winning races over fences.
  1. Braid Blue
  2. Popong
  3. Castello Sforza
