Forecasts

Shadow Rider (2/5), Mount Melleray (6/1), Eye Van (7/1), Grangeclare Native (9/1), Elusive Star (11/1), Crecerelle (16/1), Bal De Rio (25/1), The Mighty Grey (33/1), Darrens Diamond (66/1), My Mind Reader (100/1), Diegos Way (100/1), Glentruan (150/1), Patriot Poet (200/1), Lady L'lerom (200/1), Iknownothing (200/1), Chosen Flyer (200/1), Oscaraldo (250/1), Dr Bury (250/1), The Brimming Water (250/1)

Verdict

The one that stands out is SHADOW RIDER, who showed plenty of ability in finishing behind a pair with more experience on his hurdling debut last month and seems sure to improve. Mount Melleray and Bal de Rio are considered the main threats.

  1. SHADOW RIDER (FR)
  2. MOUNT MELLERAY (IRE)
  3. BAL DE RIO (FR)
