Forecasts

Winged Leader (3/1), Stand Up And Fight (7/2), Jury Duty (11/2), Templebredin (11/2), It Came To Pass (6/1), On The Sod (17/2), Some Man (10/1), Macs Legend (22/1), Super Citizen (22/1), Er Dancer (25/1), Glorious Galway (28/1), Undressed (250/1), Three Loud Knocks (300/1), Lady Violet (400/1), Ajijic (400/1)

Verdict

IT CAME TO PASS should be much closer to peak fitness with Cheltenham just around the corner, so he can show his class by taking this ahead of his bid to defend his crown in the Foxhunter. Stand Up And Fight looks a danger returning to a suitable trip, while the unexposed On The Sod is another one to consider.

  1. IT CAME TO PASS (IRE)
  2. STAND UP AND FIGHT (IRE)
  3. ON THE SOD (IRE)
