Forecasts

Corran Cross (6/4), Gaulois (3/1), Pepper'n Salt (5/1), Merry Dreamer (6/1), Palace Storm (6/1), Croagh Patrick (16/1), Ask Blossomfort (16/1), Maybenextyear (25/1), Prohus Yank (33/1), Minella Universe (40/1), Glendaars Star (40/1), Lead To The Local (40/1), Simply Shabra (50/1), Sweet Beat (50/1), The Brimming Water (80/1), Wild As Fire (200/1), The Deecoy (250/1)

Verdict

Point-winner CORRAN CROSS showed plenty when runner-up on his bumper debut at Downpatrick before disappointing at Clonmel. He's worth another chance now sent hurdling back from a break and is preferred to Gaulois, who sets the standard on his debut third at Gowran.

  1. CORRAN CROSS (IRE)
  2. GAULOIS (FR)
  3. PALACE STORM (IRE)
