Forecasts

Hazel Hill (6/4), Reikers Island (4/1), Ravished (9/2), Miss Seagreen (6/1), Ennistown (8/1), Pass The Hat (16/1), Magna Sam (22/1), Ange Des Malberaux (25/1), Heaney (25/1), Behind Time (28/1), Chase Me (28/1), Dark Mahler (40/1), Bletchley Castle (50/1), Sam Red (50/1), Drumhart (66/1), An Scairp (125/1), Staple Head (200/1), Wayupinthebox (200/1)

Verdict

HAZEL HILL has the best form and will presumably strip fitter for his recent outing between the flags, so he's an obvious choice to land this. Ennistown looks a feasible danger if he can reproduce the pick of his efforts for Anthony Honeyball, while Reikers Island is no forlorn hope if he returns fully tuned up.

  1. HAZEL HILL (IRE)
  2. ENNISTOWN
  3. REIKERS ISLAND (IRE)
