Betting

Forecast

Buildmeupbuttercup (8/11), Fujimoto Flyer (6/1), Emily Moon (13/2), Ard Abhainn (13/2), Rhythm Divine (7/1), My Midnight (12/1), Etincelle Lioterie (18/1), Effernock Fizz (25/1)

Verdict

BUILDMEUPBUTTERCUP is a suspect jumper but she has the best form and is the one to beat on these terms. Rhythm Divine shaped as if still in decent heart at Punchestown and can provide the main threat ahead of Ard Abhainn, who remains with potential.

  1. BUILDMEUPBUTTERCUP
  2. RHYTHM DIVINE (IRE)
  3. ARD ABHAINN (IRE)
