Forecasts

Frontal Assault (2/1), Allbarone (10/3), Flash De Touzaine (5/1), Ballycastle Girl (6/1), Buck Rogers (7/1), Born Patriot (17/2), Balinaboola Steel (18/1), Exit Eleven (33/1), Cregane Ned (100/1), X' Girl (250/1)

Verdict

FLASH DE TOUZAINE bumped into a promising sort on hurdling debut and didn't need to up his game to go one better in a novice at this course last time, having a bit to spare. With more to come, he's narrowly preferred to Frontal Assault and Born Patriot who have potential in their own right.

  1. FLASH DE TOUZAINE (FR)
  2. FRONTAL ASSAULT (IRE)
  3. BORN PATRIOT (IRE)
