Forecast

Hostage To Fortune (7/4), Fauguernon (16/5), Knot On Time (7/1), The Echo Boy (8/1), Brawler (8/1), Oscar Montel (12/1), Kilkeaskins First (18/1), Optical Confusion (20/1), Getaway Katie (20/1), Rocky Shores (25/1), Fr Gilligansvoyge (25/1), Stormy Judge (25/1), Diamond Grove (28/1), Load Up Time (28/1), Court Tycoon (33/1), Cats For Cash (50/1), Lean Araig (50/1)

Verdict

Lots of these have question marks against them so this looks an excellent opportunity for HOSTAGE TO FORTUNE to open his account after a promising return when third at Galway last month. The Echo Boy rates the chief threat, especially if not ridden so aggressively as when fifth at Tramore last time, while Noel Meade's Fauguernon is much respected on his chasing bow.
