Forecasts

Avoid De Master (11/4), Espalion (9/2), Feuille De Chene (5/1), Fubar (7/1), Minella Mojo (7/1), How's The Cricket (15/2), Dante's View (14/1), Don Juan Du Gouet (14/1), Solstalla (14/1), Malangen (16/1), Percy Street (22/1), Authorizo (33/1), Level Of Intensity (50/1)

Verdict

A competitive handicap in which a chance is taken on the lightly raced AVOID DE MASTER. He hinted at promise last term and starts this season on a workable mark for his new trainer Fergal O'Brien so gets the vote. Espalion heads the list of dangers, although both Minella Mojo and How's The Cricket are two who are also sure to make their presence felt in an intiguing opener.

  1. AVOID DE MASTER (IRE)
  2. ESPALION (FR)
  3. MINELLA MOJO (IRE)
