Forecast

Fest Deiz (15/8), Family Business (7/2), Breakeven (4/1), Song Of Earth (9/2), Knockmoylan (9/2), Wild Rumour (12/1), Wherethewindsblow (20/1), Gandy Man (22/1), Cabin Hill (22/1), General Clermont (33/1), Dylans Delight (40/1), Marco Rock (50/1), Its All Grace (66/1), Cooline Bluebell (200/1), Ontheforty (300/1)

Verdict

An open-looking maiden hurdle with KNOCKMOYLAN receiving the vote. Ellmarie Holden's 5-y-o has shown clear promise in a brace of bumpers lately and promises to be well suited by this step up in trip now hurdling (bred to stay well). Recent Gowran second Fest Deiz should give another good account, while Breakeven and Family Business are others to throw into the mix.

  1. KNOCKMOYLAN (IRE)
  2. FEST DEIZ (FR)
  3. BREAKEVEN (IRE)
