Betting

Forecast

Longclaw (7/4), Charlie Bassett (15/8), Scholastic (9/2), Sister Eliza (11/2), Yulong Voice (28/1), Poets Touch (33/1), Varna Gold (50/1)

Verdict

CHARLIE BASSETT is the best of these on the Flat and should take to this new discipline, so he's taken to make a winning hurdling debut at the likely expense of Longclaw, who was already getting on top when left in front at the last at Roscommon. Scholastic also warrants consideration.

  1. CHARLIE BASSETT (IRE)
  2. LONGCLAW (USA)
  3. SCHOLASTIC (IRE)
