Forecasts

It's Only A Number (10/3), Hilltop Supreme (4/1), I'll Be That Lady (11/2), Wee Small Hours (8/1), Pegase Amour (9/1), West Is Best (9/1), Sweet As A Nut (9/1), Drummullagh Rocky (12/1), Cappacon (20/1), Greenway Machine (22/1), Enduring Love (25/1), Cluan Dara (66/1)

Verdict

Not a strong race by any means and it may pay to side with HILLTOP SUPREME. A recent winner over hurdles, he's gone close from this sort of mark over fences previously and should go well again. I'll Be That Lady shaped better than being pulled up suggests latest and is feared along with It's Only A Number.

  1. HILLTOP SUPREME (IRE)
  2. I'LL BE THAT LADY (IRE)
  3. IT'S ONLY A NUMBER (IRE)
