Betting

Forecast

Wide Receiver (8/13), Valentina Lady (10/3), Baptism Of Fire (9/2), Barney Stinson (8/1), Lucailem (14/1), Gandy Man (16/1), Thebellsofshandon (16/1), Morph (22/1), The Last Throw (25/1), Mutual Respect (25/1), Shortcross Storm (40/1), Mine Me Will He (40/1), Stocai Ban (40/1), Encore De Beaufeu (50/1), Tullyhogue Fort (125/1), Full Noise (125/1), Eileens Boy (200/1), Eightytwo Team (200/1), Little Mar (200/1), Silk King (200/1), Getting In Touch (250/1)

Verdict

This looks between WIDE RECEIVER and Valentina Lady and, having shaped with promise in maiden hurdles at Limerick and Ballinrobe, the latter is not passed over lightly. However, preference is for Wide Receiver, who showed plenty in bumpers last term and this point winner will almost certainly benefit from this stiffer test now switched to hurdles. Barney Stinson is one to note in the betting.

  1. WIDE RECEIVER (IRE)
  2. VALENTINA LADY (IRE)
  3. BARNEY STINSON (IRE)
