Betting

Forecast

Whatsyourstatus (5/4), Walk Me Home (11/2), Abyssinian (8/1), Ballyadam Destiny (9/1), Quarry Rebel (10/1), Highest Benefit (11/1), Soi Cowboy (14/1), Silver Planeur (16/1), Just Another Lady (20/1), Lessofdnegativity (22/1), War Eagle (28/1), Finding Joy (28/1), Twilight Girl (33/1), Owl Creek Bridge (40/1), Time To Bite (80/1)

Verdict

Lots in with a shout but WHATSYOURSTATUS has been an improved performer over fences of late so is taken to transfer that fine form back over hurdles now. Quarry Rebel is weighted to go very well so could have a say too on his comeback, while Highest Benefit is another reverting to hurdles worth a second look.

  1. WHATSYOURSTATUS (IRE)
  2. QUARRY REBEL (IRE)
  3. HIGHEST BENEFIT (IRE)
